transplanting Northern Sea Oats now

lorri(z5 SW NE)July 31, 2013

I have a small clump of Northern Sea Oats grass that is currently in the shade that I would like to move to a new bed with a lot of sun. (mostly Western exposure.) Do you think I could move it now and have it survive, or should I wait until Spring?

If it's a small clump, you can take a huge root ball, and it will probably be ok. It's a pretty tough grass. Otherwise, Spring would be better. Make sure you keep it well watered after the move.

Thanks, Donn, I will probably end up moving it, really have itchy fingers! I may end up transplanting some epimedium as well.
