One of the fun things about moving to a home with an established garden is discovering new things. Many of them I knew about before coming here even if I never grew them.
This grass is familiar to me but I have no real idea what it is. A Carex? Acorus? It looks like this year round and you can see the little spent bloom heads from last season.
It's not that impressive right now but I think it would look great near my little pond. I'd love some ideas on what it is and how to treat it. As you can see, there's lots of common orange daylilies growing around it and through it.
Believe it or not, in all my years of gardening I've never had pachysandra! Can't say I love or adore it but at least right now it's green and Claus my garden Gnome is quite happy.
Up close the blooms are actually quite nice. I'm going to try to take some more shots this weekend with my new camera.
For those of you who want to see my little cottage, I just posted some photos on my sister blog, Melanie's Old Country Gardens.
Love to hear your suggestions about my mystery plant!
