guess...

... I knew really - didn't really know. Happy that someone knew. Inner instinct said this is different to the norm of grasses that grow in the garden. I loved this when I saw it - is it usual?

Good soil.

It is usually a small fairly compact plant, but this is quite lush, suggesting nutritious soil. It is not rare but not usually abundant when it does occur.
