This is great Amy :)
Grasses seem SO under-used yet they're a perfect addition to every border.

They're so useful as 'fill-ins' Clarice, they break up a border in a very attractive way :)

It isn,t to tall Sandy about 18" I think it would be nice for a small garden ... I imagine the one I saw today was more than one plant purposely done to cover a larger area ...............
