Verdun's good on grasses, but he's probably walking the dog on the Towans at the moment   he should be along later ............

Fairygirl

He's around now Dove. We could give him a shout....

It's very pretty Stacey!

Hiya folks

Not sure.  Not showing up too clearly.....maybe an angle from the side?  I would guess at an annual grass, not too hot on those.

Perhaps these people would know https://www.knollgardens.co.uk/Visitus.asp  I was going to go through all the grasses they show alphabetically, but I think  I'd still be here at Christmas - but they do have an email address 

Or you could scroll through all the photographs of grasses they have in their online Shop. 

Salino

..can't enlarge it, but looks like Hordeum jubatum, an annual or short lived perennial grass... have a look at that one and see what  you think...

No, Salino not hordeum jubatum.....too wispy and flat I think.  would guess at an annual grass though

Salino

well... I think that it is... I've seen it over the years at Wisley used as an annual infiller..

it only grows to about a foot high.. as it seems in the photo...

Could it be Star-Rush? Dichromena colorata.


 Oops, that's a bit large. Sorry for that.

Stacey Docherty

Oooooo that's really pretty salino it could be a hordeum jubatum there was amother photo with that plant label a little way away which could account for it! Flowerchild that is pretty I love it gonna look that up!!! My reason for asking is I have recently cleared a bed under some lailandi( I have my reasons for keeping them!!) they are trimmed high but the soil underneath is a little sandy and in full sun so I have a mini prarie thing going on with a mini rudbeckia some echinacea and x3 monarda (loving them!!) and I want some grass to infill the gaps in keeping with it!

Stacey Docherty

Now quite gutted that star rush is for wetland gardens about the only habitat I don't have in my garden!!

There is a label in the original picture - bottom right as you look at it and when I click on the picture to enlarge - bottom left. Unfortunately I can't make out the writing.

Stacey Docherty

Nut cutlet that is it then it is most def hordeum jubatum that had gone over .... Hurrah and daintiness the other label was cephalaria flavia and it's most def not that!!!! Thank you everyone am on line ordering my hordeum jubatum as soon as I finish typing!!!
