The golden oats grass....stipa gigantea. Mine now.....in recent pictures.....is 8 or 9' tall
and been in flower for weeks, even month, on 30 or 40 (?) stems. . It's now that rich gold colour! Looking at it now it's swaying ever so gently even tho apparently no wind. In strong winds it yields, bends and bounces back.
Salino, Karl Foerster is great. You will love it. Plant nothing to compete in height with it locally and it will lord it over its neighbours
Fairy, nice grasses. Give hackonechloa some reasonable room, some moisture in the soil and a tad, st least, of shade, and it will improve year on year
