The colours didn't work and then the allium foliage looked lumpen against the finer carex. Same thing in another bit where I mixed rich creamy daffs with bronze carex. Also all separated now.
Good job carex is such a forgiving plant when moved. It looks much better on its own with nothing to detract from all the fabulous shades of bronze and gold in the different strands.
I've just been out and bought a whoel load more alliums of various sizes and shapes to plant in the borders and some sphaerocephalums to go in a pot with some violas. I had some in a border but their foliage is so fine OH weeded them thinking they were grass. Doh!
