Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks for the link!
I just planted some of this grass about a week ago. I love it!

This is one of my favorite landscape grasses. I mostly use 'Blonde Ambition' for it's height and abundant flowering. The truly unique flowers make it stand out and when they ripple in the wind it's magical.
A new variety that I'm trying out is 'Pestanas de Angeles' or 'Angel's Eyelashes'. It's a shorter variety and perfect for narrower spaces or in front of taller grasses or perennials. It could also be planted in short groundcovers for a meadow look.

I've seen the Blond Ambition on High Country Gardens and have been tempted. I have plenty of a NOID. Survives without water but gets beautifully lush if irrigated. I trim mine from time to time in walking areas but leave some in clumps and around the edges for winter interest. Even where I trample it while working on various projects, it comes back next season.

For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.
