Re: Plant

Seconded .. I did have one.

It will spread rapidly and is a devil to dig out

I'd agree with Tazzart, probably Pampas Grass. You can get white and pink varieties.

We had one that grew and grew and grew...we had great fun (not) digging it out a couple of years back when we redesigned the garden. It was an absolute nightmare, the root was like a solid tree trunk, I had to use an axe to cut through it and a scaffold pole to lever it out of the ground - be warned!

It was 30 degrees the day we did it - reckon I lost half a stone

Put it in the right place and it looks good though.

Re: Plant

Thanks for your info.
I was going to plant it in the middle of my front garden but after what you have said I've changed my mind. I'm not much of a gardener so I just like to plant things that look after themselves.

Thanks again,

Ken
