I saw this grass here from another members post and don't know what it is. The lime colored one on the right.

My guess is Spodiopogon sibiricus. I have some small ones and they have great fall color. Here is a link to my hapless thread with a pic of it starting to turn.

I really like that red! Does that send up any bloom or anything? I really like that.
I had thought it was Melic Grass "red spires". Both are really pretty.

Actually now I am thinking Chasmanthium latifolium , northern sea oats. I merely dabble in grasses, so I would wait for a better ID from someone more knowledgeable than I. The Siberian frost grass does has blooms as you can see in the link.

Ga _peach - It says "images of feather reed grass" on your second post? I do believe that is what it is, Korean feather reed grass, to be more specific (Calamagrostis brachytricha).

Oops, it's identified in the post as Calamagrostis x acutiflora.

PG - she is asking about the grass on the right side of the pic. The reed grass is the one on the left I believe.

Oh, I see, my mistake, LOL. I think it's Chasmanthium as well, but why not just ask hczone6? It's their yard.

Definitely Sea Oats ... dead head those things before the end of the season, though. They reseed rather aggressively and are not terribly easy to get rid of once established (in other words, pluck up any volunteer seedlings the first weeks of spring). Otherwise it's a wonderfully handsome little grass that seems to withstand a great deal of abuse and neglect (not a pretty thing for a koi fancier to admit)
