    It looks a bit like Phalaris Arundinacea var. Picta. Gardener's Garters. Could be wrong.

    Not that one @Borderline.  The grass stalk grows up and then splits into lots of spikes at the top. I had it in the pot a few years ago but I can't remember where I got it from or what it's called.

    Looks like what we call Flax Lilies (Daniella).  Produces wispy spikes with bluish berries in optimum setting.

    Could it be Hakonechloa macra?

    @Yviestevie I do hope you are successful in identifying it.

    @Ladybird4 I've not been happy with some of the thrillers in my pots this year so I looked back at my photos and really liked this one.  I hope I can find it too. I've been looking at the grass suppliers websites but no luck so far.

    @Yviestevie could it be Carex oshimensis?

    @Ladybird4 no I have that one.  Must admit it is a bit like a carex I've been wondering if it is Cyperus involucratus It's certainly similar, but it's not quite right, although it does have the same straight stem and a load of spikes at the top.  I seem to remember the CI being a bit softer at the top though.

    @Ladybird4 Yay, I've found it.  It's called Carex sparkler.
