Imperata Cylindrica is that one red baron, as i have one that is a bit invasive and have had to split and put into pots.

Yes Surreylad this one is red baron, not really invasive here but has only been planted a year or so and we are on heavy clay soil, so will wait and see, don't mind it spreading a bit though as I love it :-) just hope its not another casualty of the severe weather,walking round the garden yesterday sooo many things look dead, oh well wait and see what happens in spring.
