Is it Gardener's garters http://www.shootgardening.co.uk/plant/phalaris-arundinacea-var-picta-feesey .  A cottage garden plant likes damp soil, sometimes new shoots are flushed with pink.  If you like it leave it but watch it doesn't spread everywhere.  http://www.edenproject.com/shop/go/plant.aspx?id=7076
