Looks like artemisia dracunculus to me.  It also sounds like it from your description of root system Poppy Girl .  I would get rid of it

Agree with ??ou Joe.  Frost on hardy perennials is beneficial I think.

Yviestevie, well I have it I have it in partial shade but sun will improve that variegation. The sunnier the spot the better the soil ...moisture content.....should be.  However, in spring sun will not affect it.

I bought a lot of my grasses from Hoecroft Nursery as small plants.  Knoll gardens I guess is number one fame wise but check both out and compare.

Best too, to assess your garden soil and comditions prior to acquiring grasses.  As you prob know, Philippa, some like it moist like deschampsia, molinia and many carex.    Then others like it dry.  Check for invasiveness too.  However, grasses do give a lot of pleasure so good luck and have fun choosing
