Good evening folks! I received blessings from Pitimpinai :)

She gave me these grasses. Can I put them in full sun?

Thanks!

Yes...they would prefer full sun.

I have a piece of Mone's Yaku Jima also. It's still in a pot, but will be installed as soon as I see if it survived winter.

Which one is taller? What will be their height in September? I need this info so I can decide where to plant them.

Thanks. :)

'Yaku Jima' will be a bit taller. Foliage to 50" and blooms to 60". It blooms earlier, too...~August.

'Morning Light' is 40" in foliage and 60" in blooms, and it blooms in ~September.

These heights are always dependent upon conditions, as is bloom time.

You can find this information yourself on Bluestem's Grass Comparison Chart:

Thanks for the link.

The clump I received was 11" in diameter. I planted it today. Will it bloom this year?

Thanks!

I'd say it will. Every Miscanthus I've transplanted or divided and transplanted has bloomed in it's next bloom season. It's usually a fairly sparse bloom, compared to an established plant.
