Before I get rid of it!
In reply to Stoat:
I'm mystified too, had one or two in the garden last year, kept waiting for a flower to appear - but nothing. So I pulled it out, not easy it had a deep root if I remember correctly.
Lot to learn
In reply to gaynorsl:
We too have had a lot of it in the garden and i think it is a real menace and spreads everywhere! Very difficult to dig up! It seems to self seed!
In reply to 58willow:
We had a red hot poker in the same place and presumed it was still that for a while bit after no flowers last year I started to have my doubts!think it will be coming up out of the ground then
I am no expert but I get a lot of these, similar very sharp leaved grasses that have what I term Foxtail, as they produce long stalks with furry tail CHOL:):)
is it any of these?
In reply to SunnyKate2:
Cut back quite heavily now.that was hard work so I'm not looking forward to digging it out!
Looks to me like foliage from a miniature red hot poker, as the stems are thinner and shorter that the normal ones, or it could be as has been suggested some type of ornamental grass.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
