@hkyfvr @gjones thank you both 😁 they reminded me of ears of corn 😂 so cute! Thought I’d lost both plants in spring so am very pleased they’ve bounced back and even flowered ☺️

@ublaszko isn’t it! It just glows in the sunshine and there are so many flowers (if they’re called that 😜) 🤎

@alan1111 I found this at Cambridge Botanic Gardens and hadn’t seen a grass like it before. It’s the most amazing colour at the moment 😍 I do love a grass 😛

@ublaszko the way they hang below the upright foliage is lovely. They’re really low growing this year though. Maybe because I cut it right back 🤔

Could just be because it's been so dry. Carex grasses like the soil to be consistently moist.

@jaynehynesburton it doesn’t, even the new growth looks this colour. It’s so lovely but I can never tell if it’s died on me 🤣
