dividing mondo grass plants

Ann_in_Houston(z9 Houston)April 22, 2011

I bought three dozen plants and now I read you are supposed to plant them six to eight inches apart. Can I divide them so that I can place them closer or will that damage the roots?

I posted this in the groundcover forum with no results. Would anyone here advise against this?

You can't really hurt them. :)

Amen to that. I usually plant my mondo and monkey grass (liriope) in larger clumps and closer together than many recommend. This is because I, unlike some, very impatient about filling my beds and lawn spaces. Waiting for 6 months, much less two years just ain't me!

Melvalena, thanks. That's what I expected, so I went ahead. I will probably add to them throughout the summer so I can fill in quickly.

I'm assuming you can buy fertilizer for grasses. I want to really get them going.
