I've got some stripey grass, that is so lovely to touch, that one touch is never enough. An ideas what kind it is?




Looks very like Holcus mollis 'Albovariegatus'.

I am familiar with this plant as I had one in a border at work. Unfortunately, the wild rabbits also liked it!

I gave one to my sister last year. She pulled it to bits and has given me back 40 young plants. Would you like one?

Thank you but I am struggling for space. I suppose I could put it in a pot. If it's not too much trouble that would be very kind of you. Only a tiny bit as it bulks up quickly and will keep your postage down:-).
