Can anyone recommend a grass for a novice?
It occurred to me today that a tall grass would look nice behind a young Rodgersia I have. It comes up a chocolate brown before turning green and I thought blue would look nice with it.
I'm not very good with grass having a 50/50 live/die rate.
I thought at least a metre high, pref blue but any colour except green. Upright and formal looking. Site is sun from east and south in summer, just east in winter. Not exactly boggy in winter, but not particularly well drained. It'll have about a square metre of space after I've done some tinkering. Hardy, deciduous is fine. Soil is neutral, loam on clay. Beginner level. Relatively sheltered.
I've already got Miscanthus Malepartus so something else would be nice.
Is anything suitable or has anyone any other suggestions?
