Empty Space??

Hate contrived borders like quarters segments etc.  a chance to plant up with one or two perennials ?  Bitty colours would look odd in your otherwise large planting I think.  Go for bold

Couldn't resist it beaus mum.....swaying in the wind and the pink flowers ....the colour hasn't come out quite as pink..... in the sun.  Perhaps, as you say,  yours is in too damp a spot because miscanthus should stand up well to wind and rain

In full sun and good soil?  Salvia Patens will produce glorious blue all summer.  All one colour for impact.  Nepeta flowers all summer too.  Or a bed of Imperata red baron.........bulbs for spring and this grass will gradually turn a brilliant red in midsummer through to autumn.  Another grass, hackonochloa, is a lovely, classy  mound of,yellow turning shades of orange, copper, yellow and red .

Didn't notice much of a storm last night .......not too bad this morning.  Actually some blue sky and doesn't seem too windy. However, this is a sheltered walled garden so prob is different out there.   Forecast is "mainly sunny"

Miscanthus don't seem to mind rough weather  at all 

Enjoyed a free meal last night ........eat and flee ....and doesn't " free" taste better?

Take it easy out there if the storm is with you  folks

They need a really l early start and warmth over a long  period.  I start off with big clumps.....huge in the  garden......in large pots.  Mine flower from about July and still in flower.

I think you put them outside too early.  Keep them warm in GH a little longer.
