Sorry MrsGarden. Missed your question re hordeum jubatum.
I grew mine from seed too....sown late winter and now several inches tall. they can be a short term perennial but best as an annual really.
For grasses this year I would get a few stipa Tennuissima. If they are of reasonable size you can gently pull them apart and pot up. Give them a few weeks and you will have extra plants for your edge. might be nice to put groups of them in, if you have enough depth there, say of 3 and then a purple Heuchera or two. They contrast beautifully both in colour and form.
Glad you had a good birthday Orchid Lady. Getting some hellebores can't be bad
