Tennuissima grows about 60 to 80 cm. plant about 15 to 20 cm apart. They will seed can pot these up for full size flowering plants the next year. They are hardy.
They wont swamp anything
They look good with heucheras, echinaceas, agastaches, salvias, veronicas, eryngiums, helychrysum (curry plant), santolinas, artemisia powys castle, berberis atropurpurea nana, etc

Sounds excellent value Lyn, those salvias. Every time I have a new salvia I take cuttings.

Exactly what it will do Librarians Garden....send up several shoots and you can rub out those you dont want

have I killed it?

Actually a neighbour of,mine grew phalaris in a difficult spot too and it did look good and thrived

On the sunny side, depending on height you want, blue fescue, stipa tennuissima, helictotrichon, elymus magellanicus, carex buchanii, carex comans bronze, to taller varieties like stipa gigantea, calamagrostis varieties and miscanthus.

I like stipa tennuissima as a group though....bright evergreen foliage and billowing,,swaying flowers all summer long. Very tactile.
