RE: moor grass grown from seed...can it be done?

I doubt it. The Latin name for variegated moor grass is Molinia caerulea 'Variegata'. The single quotes around the last word indicates that it is a plant that can (most likely) only be propagated vegetatively (eg. by dividing plants).

Seeds are probably either sterile or will give you plants of Molinia caerulea, which isn't variegated.
