Nice link obelixx - I wonder if the molinia I saw is the shorter form that they have, as it's certainly not as tall as the other one pictured!
Have a look at the Purple Moor Grass, Molinia caerulea - it has lovely purplish seedheads - there's also a variegated form.
If you're soil's slightly acid and on the damp side it would be great.
Scale will put the plant under stress so it is less able to cope with other things. They should be selling plants in an optimum condition to cope with changing to a new environment. They're trying to pull the wool over your eyes. I'd still take it back.
But whatever you decide to do - good luck.
If I bought a tree which came complete with 30 scale insects I would take it back and demand a refund
Lily - don't tempt me! It's a Fast Day!!!
KEF, she'd look like this and I'd look like this
My experience of Scotland is a bit limited nightgarden - it is acknowledged that the week we chose to spend Midsummer's Day on the Hebrides had some particularly grim moments but some magical ones as well
Think you're doing brilliantly Johannele - and thanks for joining in with this - I saw some of your Whooper swans the other day, they're spending the winter over here in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire
Glad you've come through without damage Verdun - hope the rest of the West Country's the same
I understand that Galanthus Mighty Atom comes from Benhall in Suffolk - I too come from that area - it should come home to me
