Transplanting Maiden Grass
I have a question concerning my Miscanthus sinensis "Gracillimus" (I have two) When I first got them back in 2003, they were tiny and near dead (discount rack) and I didn't think they would survive and just planted them in my front garden. Okay, last year and this year they have grown to about 6'and very full. I would really like to plant them in a different area of my yard. If I had realized they would survive and just how large they would become - I would have planted them in a different spot. (I'm not blaming the grass! Ha ha! I was stoopid!)
My question is - if it is okay to move them - when is the best time of year? I don't want to do anything to damage them - I like them very much and I think they look great. It's just that where they are now does not show them very well and they also dwarf some of my smaller flowers. I'd really like to move them to an area that shows them off more and also could use their their space-filling capabilities. (My front garden is my smallest garden area - they are pretty much squeezed in there - they were only 3" when I planted them! LOL!)
I'm very worried about hurting them, so I don't want to do anything too drastic to get them moved.
Any help or suggestions will be very appreciated!
