    Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum'... not hardy, but maybe so in London...
    East Anglia, England

    There are several very similar red/pink tinged varieties of pennisetum and some are much hardier.  Mine has survived being frozen solid in a pot during the beast so I think I'm safe with that one. Can't remember it's name though  :*

    For yours I agree with others that it might need some wrapping up in the coldest spells but then it depends on your situation and siting. Sometimes there's a warmer micro climate in London where its very protected.
