Can you put a name to these

 

I've had this in the greenhouse for ages but can't remember what it is and my tag is missing.

 Plant 2

Also i've had these Pampas Grasses growing in the green house for a while now. Would you say they are ready to go out now, they are in 3 Litre pots.

    No 2 looks like New Zealand Black grass/Black Mondo grass, but mine has violet flowers

    I came across this pic - what a fab hat for Ascot!

    Must be Black Mondo Grass Pete as mine also has violet flowers but its never looked like the one you shown.

    Sadly nor has mine.....

    Looks a great display, so may have a go at recreating it for next year.

    Think No. 2 is Ophiopogon planiscapus - possibly the Nigrescens form, but it's not got the dark colour 'cos it's not had enough sunlight?

    Edited to say: aka Black Mondo Grass image

    Agree with Dove re 2

    I don't think 1 is periwinkle

    Have serious doubts re the last being Pampas grass, looks more like a juncus

    Seeds sold to me as Pampas grass, to be honest i've been thinking it wasn't because of the leaves are not as wide.

    It's those leaves that appear to be in threes that make me think not periwinkle Runnybeak. But the top pic has leaves in pairs and maybe it is Vinca minor

    Pampas grass has quite rough, flat leaves and your plants look too smooth.

    Yep i agree, deffo juncus rush.image

    That's a plant that often turns up when growing things Voyagerxp. It likes the watering programmeimage
