Yvie, yvie yvie.....you made me choke on my donut then. "Bbbbbbboring ornamental grasses".
Do you grow them? Are they swaying, billowing and whispering in your garden? Any with red foliage? With blue foliage? With variegated foliage? any providing structure? Anything in your garden that's flowered since June? anything providing foliage from late March through the winter?
"Swathes"? Don't need swathes. Grasses dotted about are extremely beautiful and robust. Heavy prolonged rain and strong winds are resisted unlike most perennials that need to be staked.
