Grass ID

peteSpeteS Posts: 927
Could anyone ID the grass in the photo please. The original plant was bought many many years ago so all identification has been lost. It self seeds like mad, and definitely prefers a dry gravel environment rather than rich soil, as my small gravel area will testify, as it is smothered in self seeded plants. I'm not complaining, because it does actually look rather good. It grows to about two feet maximum, and has a rather nice mixture of reds and copper tones running through it. Many thanks.
