  1. What great images, the villosum is gorgeous! I love Pennisetum macrourum, I think it’s one of my top ten grasses for winter too. Do you find it spreads quickly? This year I’m trying dwarf form P.m. ‘Short Stuff’, looks promising ….

  2. Thanks. Yes, I needed to split it after second year to keep things airy. Was happy to have more though because those spikes are so useful and long lasting. Please let me know how you get on with ‘Short Stuff’. How dwarf is it?

    Lovely photos of gorgeous grasses. Is the Hordeum an annual?
