This is one of the early ornamental grasses I introduced into the Moosey garden. I got it from a nursery, not realising it was such a compulsive self seeder. Oops!
Ornamental Seed Heads
Weeds by the Water
Foolishly I planted it in the Dog-Path Garden near the water race. The following season the Dog-path itself was covered by a carpet of seedling plants. They were easy to pull out, but I dread to think of the environmental effects my single purchase has had on the edges of the water race downstream. Verbascums and Gunnera have arrived in my garden via the water race, but that's no excuse!
Now just two or three clumps of this ornamental grass are allowed to grow - well away from the water!
