Carex trifida flower (Carex trifida)

It reminds me of furry tails - the flowers are really big!

I reckon it looks great, just watch you don't find a hole where that plant is growing (hee hee)

You'd have a job, Grindle - I staggered around Malvern with it last Autumn, and it's even bigger since then! I 'think' someone might notice you with it...LOL.

Homebird, I'm surprised - I think that all the Carex plants I have do flower, and at about this time of year, as well!

I still can't understand where your flowers are, Homebird...strange....

Can you put a photo on of the whole plant please so that I can see just how much space it needs......

Ummm...there is one already - I'll find it and tell you where it is......

Found it! Go to my blog archive - Winter Interest part 5 'Grasses' written in December 2009, and it's the first photo. If you look you'll see a skimmia top right - that gives an idea of the size of this!!!!

My Nurseryman who 'did' the plant stall thought it was a photinia! Well - it isn't. lol.
