I have ton's of this stuff around my yard, apparently the woman who owned the property previously must have LOVED this stuff! I was at a local nursery the other day and saw them selling it for $18 for a small bunch!!! I simply couldn't believe it.

Anyway, I would love to trade some of this for other things that fancy me Some of these things are;

Chamomile
Calendula
Lavender
Thyme
Rosemary
Spearmint
Catnip
Echinecea

(sorry if I spelled anything wrong )

Thats really pretty and really expensive here too.

Doubt it would survive the trip across the Border though.

It looks like variegated mondo grass also known as Aztec grass, check out this photo from the web. Does it spread with rhizomes?

What is a Rhizome? Pardon my ignorance but I'm fairly new to this gardening thing and I don't know what that means?

It develops a seed stalk much like other grasses and it is anywhere from 1' to 3' tall.

A rhizome is like a root that travels underground then sends up a new plant some distance from the original plant.

Thanks MamaBear!

No it doesn't grow by rhizomes, that is how Monarda grows right? and Rudbekia too?
