Hi forumites, can anyone tell me what this grass is. It was in an NGS garden this summer but sadly it person who planted it could not remember the name?

    That really is rather splendid isn't it?  I wonder where I could find room ............... I see Beth Chatto sells them

    I'm not really a fan of grasses but I do like this one and have seeds to sow next spring.   I expect Plant World and Chiltern Seeds stock them too as that's where I usually buy my seeds.
