Deschampsia Golden Dew
Full sun or partial shade so would work well in a bit of a shady border. It is fairly fast growing and quite compact. It would look good spot-planted among perennials.
Remove the faded flower heads in late winter before new growth appears. If the foliage looks tatty then this can be cut back hard too. In warmer areas this grass will self seed freely.
Propagated by division.

Hardy anywhere in Britain below approximately 1000ft (300m)

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
