Yes, that's the one. It does well in shade if you have a spot suitable. It does self seed (when it flowers) and I let them grow til they're full of dead stuff and then discard. I've never cut one back to remove the dead stuff which might be worth trying.

With that much bark loss the prognosis is poor for the future as a tree.

It's already growing from the base, I'd fell it (or get someone else to fell it) and let it regrow as a shrub

That's a cultivar of the Anamathele lessoniana/Stipa arundincea isn't it.

It probably is. Best guess unless we see the whole thing and change our minds
