Had to move Muhly capillaris plants.....

I had to move three small muhly capillaris clumps that were in a bad area (stump removal man said they were in the way). I moved them to a spot that only gets sun from about 1:30 on - but since I am in the South, those hours of sun are intense.

Do you think they can survive the upheaval and the area where they were placed? They are still quite small. I am also wondering if they were to survive, would they flower or did I ruin the process? Thanks - (unfamiliar with grasses except for blue fescues ... and stil learning).

That's probably enough sun. They're rated for full sun to part shade, so if they survive the late transplant, they'll probably do fine.

I answered your transplant question on the WS Forum. You're in a warm enough zone they probably have enough time to get reestablished before dormancy sets in.

Given the choice between transplant and the stump grinder, I would have made the same decision. ;>)

Donn - you are so encouraging (and so informative, too!).

Thanks again - Carrie
