Brad, I thought you might want to see the virella.

I can't tell any difference between virella, and rubro shoots. I took some pictures this year with the shoots side by side. I'll post them when I find them. Their leaves are similar, but their growth habits are different at this point. Virella is shorter than rubro, more shrub like with an arching culm. It is also slower growing than rubro. Its been in the ground for 6 years, and is not spreading much. Not as hardy as rubro, top burns more.

Sounds like I got the wrong plant, it is supposed to be hyper-hardy and similar to Atrovaginata and it is neither.
