Such a lot of worries ......best wishes for,everyone involved.  I guess we take each day as it comes and maybe not worry too much about the next day.  Not easy though is it?

Hopefully this thread will give continue to give support, advice and general encouragement.  Almost feel I know so many here now so I am concerned

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
