cortaderia selloana splendid star

Posted: 15/09/2012 at 12:51

have just bought this plant,(cortaderia sellana 'splendid star') lable discribes it as a low pampas  grass,growing to 70cm. This i can manage, but have just looked it up on line and they say it gets to about 120cm nearly twice the size. Has any one grow this out there please need some advice, as am changing boarder around tomorrow so needed to know whereto put it

What's the weather like in your area?

Aftercare of geums

Ihave had my geums for years, Mrs Bradshaw i think, dark red. Ialways thought they flowered quite well in mid spring, not all summer,they flowered a little bit this year, and they haven't reproduced at all. Think i most feed them more. Chichen pellets seem a good bet.Thank you budlea63. Can i get them from any garden centre

Thank you all for your replies. Hope it is just slugs and not vine  weival. My garden has been a wash with slugs as well. Just didn't think they would eat shrub leaves.

No sign of caerpillars etc .Any ideas please.
