Alphonse Karr Divisions...Survival?
I have a ~3yo AK "hedge" along my back fence. About a month ago I decided I needed to separate the back (toward fence) off the clumps because I was getting fall shoots under the fence on my neighbor's side. I tried to separate good size clumps with 2-3 culms using a recip. saw.
I potted about 20 of the divisions and pruned down to just a few leaves. Most have done very well (new branches at nodes) but ~5 withered all the leaves and another 2-3 aren't looking too good.
So my question, is there anything left to hope for with those divisions with dead leaves? Something to re-shoot from the rhizome in the spring?
PS There is also a sub-clump intermingled with one of my AK clumps with solid green culms...branching and leaves look VERY similar to the AK but not sure if I've seen any solid green before???
