    This is gorgeous, I’m not normally a grass gardener, I have a couple but I am weary of things that could take over. But this maybe because of the light is stunning, I am going to look it up and see if I can grow it here in the UK. Brilliant picture… 🙂

      Thanks, Sue. First I hope you can find it, because it is indeed a fall wonder. I have never experienced its spreading whatsoever, and I usually leave it alone until late winter (when you might be concerned about it seeding about) to cut it back. It continues to make a show, albeit tan, through the winter. Secondly, get well!

    I’ve got it as well and it’s a true star plant especially when backlit.
