Stipa Gigantea's truly lovely, but needs space. I gave mine to a friend, it's lovely to see it thriving in it's new home. The tenuissimas are much more in scale in my garden, have a few dotted around, I love watching them dance in the wind. Had a Miscanthus Rotsilber which got too big too, found I was having to dig it up every year, hack off a bit and replant it...so that's gone to a new home too. Can't be doing with plants I'm always fighting with, no matter how lovely they are.
Over the last couple of years I've got much more interested in growing veg than ornamentals, which doesn't mean I want to turn the garden into an allotment, I really enjoy the challenges of aesthetic and productive veg growing.
