Name that Grass

Fellow Garden Bloggers! Help a girl out. A previous neighbor gave me this grass and I love it. Delightful coppery, winter color. I do not know the name of this grass. Do you?


Cheers, Jenni

  1. Could it be Anemanthele lessoniana?

  2. I think the Carex guess is correct...Anementhele doesn't cascade like that.

  3. I'm pretty sure outlaw is correct, I was going to say the same. I have plenty of it too, I love it!

    1. Alison, it's so pretty in pots. I'm so pleased to have some in pots right now to move around and position for some winter color.

  4. Sorry grass isn't my strong point. The nearest I could guess is hairy copper head :)

  6. Hi Jenni, Watch the grass this summer. Keep it in a spot where it gets at least a half day of sun so it will bloom. When it does, post another photo so we can get a good look at the blooms. Then we'll be able to give a more definitive ID. If it is a Carex, it will have small, short, brownish-looking spikes. If it's Anemanthele lessoniana, it will have more grassy-like plumes. I'm tending toward a Carex too but time will tell. How nice of your neighbors. Love those bright red Nandinas too.
