Re: gardenpix/ carex

Yeah, Ceres, the Ophiopogon just wouldn't make it in your climate. 
Pity as it's nice, but as was noted slow as molasses in January about
increasing.  If you could overwinter it frost free, you could grow a
pot full and sink it in the garden for summer:-)

I think of blue lyme as aggressive, but not invasive for me.  I mean,
I can easily keep it under control - but different climates and all
that.  If I had more sun, I'd try blue oat...so many neat grasses and
not enough sun:-(
