Once established it bulks out nicely without being invasive Jane, I love it. Not actually a grass, but a member of the orchid family

@LyndaClack @gjones I can't wait for it grow a bit but apparently it's a slow grower 🤔🤔

Cataloguing. Pinched from my next door neighbour, with permission of course, along with some Snowdrops. Absolutely delighted with this 😊😊
