@davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co this is that grass in the damp border it would seem it will grow in dry or damp and looks just as good in either #grass #grasses 💛💛💛

@midnightgardener when I split this one if you are anywhere near Crossgates one day I can always pot it up for you or if you go to Harrogate flower show if its still on in autumn can bring it then hun got two to split as they don't stand upright if you don't split them every 3 years I've enough in borders now hun x

@keely I'm looking for recommendations for another grass to compliment/contrast with this Carex in a small (5m x 0.5m) shaded gravel covered area ive created beside a new path under eaves of a shed (moist and shaded). Similar height. 😀

@barrowman hi Chris do you have the red hook sedged everflame grass its a shorter version to this but deep burgundy compliments this one well. I will tag you in pics of mine 😆

Im just looking at getting one of these keely, one site says dont grow in full sun, as the leaves bleach. The other says best in full sun. Any advice. Im thinking of sitting it in my pond, it comes in aquatic pots at crocus, but itll get a lot of sun.

@davewrightjoinerygooglemail.co all mine are in part sun Dave this one that thrives only gets afternoon sun....not sure about the pond though I very rarely water mine this is at back of the spirea bridal wreath which is very dry, I have some in back border that's damper never seem to do aswell 😕

Are most grasses hardy? Ive not got any grass in my garden..

3w
comment
Keely

@kamaki they are the odd half hardy or short lived ones but mainly most are hardy, they add great texture to a border or pot, I have a lot in pots in my back garden as its north facing to the patio area so they do great there 👍

comment
kamaki

Thanks for that Keely! and do they tend to spread easily? As I'd like something to fill gaps. Im also going to look into mosses as well..

comment
Keely

@kamaki they do which means every 3-4 years you can split them in Spring and have more plants to put somewhere else or share 👍😆
