Chasmanthium latifolium? They are a grass - no fertilizing necessary. Although tolerant of rather poor soils, they prefer fertile, moist soils.

Plant has a reputation for serious a very mild climate such as yours I'm surprised it hasn't done so prolifically.

You might try posting on the Ornamental Grasses forum also.
