mmmmm ... I'd probably give them about 100% chance of survival ... these are real tough plants!

They are also considered cool season grasses so transplant better in fall or early spring than do warm season grasses, which are either not putting out growth yet or have stopped for the season.

It's been awhile since I visited Orn Grass site and posted anything but I agree w/ gardengal48, I always try to plant my grasses in "their" season .... I try to plant ... but it doesn't always work out that way.
