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.

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)
