This grass was given to me by my Uncle. It was about 20 fronds, and a foot high.. Now it is about three foot high, and about 4ft in circumference. Ornamental Grass? Or Weed?
I think a better photo would be required. This one must have been taken in the dark. A sight of the leaves or the flower would be essential to ID. Both preferably
Stipa arundinacea? It does clump up quickly.
I agree - Stipa arundinacea, although I think it's name has changed - can't remember what.
Here we go - far better picture - complete with the litte thingies that grow on the stalks.... You can see I'mreally good at gardening
Not too sure what grasses they are,but i have a mysterious plant appeared in my garden too .Its about 5ft tall with lemon flowers see pic,hoping someone will no its name?
that is cephalaria ruth (scabious)
I'm not a grass expert so will leave that for others,but Ruth's is a scabious.
Someone elsewhere has suggested rushes
I think the 'grassy' thing might be a Juncus - soft rush http://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/soft-rush
Try Juncus effuses or something similar ( a Rush)
brrrrr brrrrrr brrrrr Dove From Above... Uvvaavvvooooooo.. You are right!! That looks exactly like it....
And Fidget Bones... Also THank you so much,!
A very useful plant in the past - you've heard of rush lights?
