Oh yes nut. That's why it's such fun here
Yes, but they LOOK like grasses. I still plant them for their "grasslike" form. As I do for carex, Phormium, liriope. But I agree we have all digressed from the original question
Just heard the weather forecast. Snow is forecast for Christmas eve. It's supposed to be heavy too but only lasting for couple of days. Stacey, you got your wish. How did you do that?
I grow Guinevere a beautiful white angels fishing rod.....not aware that it attracts any wildlife though
You are naughty gardengirl. You got Stacey all excited. Course, ??ou didn't fool me
Hee hee hee. I am, I am I am
Passion flower I pruned every year in autumn or early spring. Cut it back by half without going too far into old wood. However, it became a bit of a thug here so it was removed. Tempted by some of the tender varieties though as they could survive here
I grow several grasses...bow to Jim's knowledge there about the wildlife they attract. However plants like agastaches attracted bees in huge numbers last year in my garden as well as butterflies and they complement grasses so well.
If you walk amongst or through knotweed it really is a powerful looking plant. It's rate of growth and spread are amazing.
