Hi Verdun. Thanks for that. Some conifers do a lot for a garden - I will remember that one you mention and consider instead of Rheingold. Note you mention Hellebores another favourite of mine but only grow three. In spite of trying it umpteen times Niger I have never succeeded with and yet folk tell me it is easy renough. I have corsicus, foetidus and orientalis. I know you love grasses and I have some, Hakenochloa, Molinia, Carex (2 var), Millium (Bowles), Holcus, Phalaris ( in spite of its rampings love this for those leaves all different), Briza, Ophiopogon green and black, Liriope though not strictly a grass I treat it as such - have had others in the past but plot too small now so a try a few of everything. If I may say you are obviously very knowledgeable about plants and this I think is right, if you love things you must know all about them - what think you. Regards.
