can anyone id this grass.......also is it an annual or perennial?
It has a look of papyrus about it Mary - Cyperus, but I'm no expert on that.
I didn't think any of those were hardy in the UK though.
Do you have a pic of the whole plant?
hi fairygirl......I can't upload another picture. There are several strappy leaves at the bottom of the plant. I looked up sedges and I think it may be one of them. The stem is not round but kind of triangular.....if that makes sense.
I was given them as seeds last year and this is one of several. Not sure now if I should use them in the garden. What do you think?
Cyperus eragrostis is more or less hardy and seeds around to keep itself going.
It is a Cyperus, it won't be a problem plant
Nut to the rescue!
That's interesting nut - I didn't think any of them were hardy at all.
they seeded around here for years Fairy, finally disappearing over a very hard winter. But I've started some more now, in their second year
They're very architectural nut.
they are Fairy
Thanks peeps......good to know I can go ahead and plant in the garden
