Stipa Gigantea

..lovely close ups Kim...thanks for posting these....  only you can tell us if those leaves are sharp to the touch on the outside... you would really be needing gloves I think if it's a Pampas...they can easily cut the flesh...  I note the leaves have a central midrib.. I can't recall if that is the case with Pampas...   perhaps it will flower soon...looks like some thicker stems coming up there...

..are you quite sure that's Stipa gigantea...?   it looks a bit tall - narrow - and the leaves rather wide...  mine has a grassy base about 3 foot wide and 18 inches tall...and the leaves are narrower.... the flower spikes rise from that 8 foot or so...

..at a glance, the shape of yours looks more like a Miscanthus...

..Chris has a lovely border going on there...lots of interest... but it ought to be said... the fence is terrible...and does nothing to enhance your plantings... it's a shame... I'm a firm believer in getting the background right...if you are able to do so...

Another plant ID please
