I have a giant reed(Arundo Donax?) I planted it poorly last year. I thought it would get enough light,but it didn't. I moved it last month and It hasn't done a thing. Is it still early? Did I kill it when I moved it? I really love this plant and want it to flourish.

Living in a cold zone did you mulch it in the winter. Or maybe it was dead when you moved it. There is also temperature variables that decide when a plant breaks dormacy. Only time will tell.

It was lightly mulched, also on the west side of the house. Not well protected. I think this one is done. I still have no growth.
