Maggie Sugden asked me to post these two images of a shrub called Indigothera which she persuaded someone to buy at last month’s plant auction, so they know what they have bought!

Pat Inman, our secretary, recently visited Penn Wood in Buckinghamshire and saw this beautiful grass. Can anyone identify it please? (To comment click on image and the comment box becomes visible).

She also saw another grass on the woodland drive at Harlow Carr. She think it is a species of carex but not as fine as the one at Penn Wood. Again can anyone identify it please?
