My absolute favourite grass 🤎🌾🤎 #carex #sedge #carex-milk-chocolate
It is lovely. Great name too. 😁
Looks a lot like wheat!
@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 ☺️
Very welcome. They remind me of wheat too. I could not think of that last night. 🙀
#carex #sedge #carex-milk-chocolate
Wow! It's beautiful 😍😍😍
@ublaszko isn’t it! It just glows in the sunshine and there are so many flowers (if they’re called that 😜) 🤎
Another unusual one Kerry how I'd you come across this one
@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 😛
I've taken a liking to grasses myself. I'll be a bit cheeky now 😉 any chance of a seed 😜
@alan1111 of course 😛 I will keep some for you 😁
Happy days 👍
I love the shape of the flowers/seedheads 😍😍
@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.
@ublaszko that too 😜 not a bit of rain here for weeks 😫
@lesliecole49 thanks Leslie 😁
Kerry this grass is here, does it stay this colour
It does Jayne 😁 if you scroll back through it shows a few photos and it lightens a little at times but pretty must a constant milk chocolate colour 😋
Thanks Kerry, thought it was getting green at one bit but it was weeds in the middle 😁
Love the straw colour....🧡
@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom it’s sometimes confusing to know if it’s alive or not though 🙈
They really do look dead through the winter months mine are the same..
Living up to its ‘milk chocolate’ name 😋
@wtwitchell6969 evening 😊
@kez001uk I was naughty yesterday as I went into B@m and they had 15 litre square pots they were 5.99 reduced to £1.99 I bought the lot lol there was 34 left
@wtwitchell6969 that’s a great bargain. Nice 😛
Does this green up Kerry, I have quite a bit here that looks similar
@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 🤣
@ublaszko it’s one of my favourites now 🖤 it’s separated into 2 plants though 😂 should I leave it to repot next year?
Milk chocolate - botanic garden purchase 😛 wanted cloud grass but didn’t have any for sale 😥
