Pony Tails

The newly planted Stipa Tenuissima on the path borders.You can get an idea of the Westerly wind blowing through it.It is so soft and fluffy the grass heads.I love the colours and the soft feel of it.I think movement in a garden from wind is relaxing.This would look great in a border near to a seating area.You can hear the wind blowing through it, see the grass bend and sway to the breeze, and you can run your hand through the ponys tail.
I saw this planted in the rose revolution borders, and the path border leading to the big ornamental grasses display.

I have this ornamental grass in my front garden but had forgotten the name. Thanks for enlightening me. I think he plant to the right of it is another Campion, as I have seen both the deep pink and white.
