Sad looking

Sad looking  (Uncinia rubra (Hook Sedge))

Bought this in Columbia Road flower market about a year ago, probably, along with 3 other different grasses. None of them seems to have any life left in them including this. Any ideas?

Oh dear :(
It's not too happy is it ?
I have one in my rock garden, it's doing fine - that one's in a very well drained area.
Is yours too wet ? I'm looking at the water in the bottom of the saucer and the wet soil it's in, maybe it's not draining well enough.
Perhaps there's something eating the roots ?
Or .... has it dried out badly and you've only just watered it there ?

Maybe another member has a better idea though.
