Gardeners' Notes:

Positive artistdesigner On Sep 14, 2005, artistdesigner wrote:

These ornamental grasses do very well here in Fairfield, Connecticut in spring and fall. They make a beautiful back drop in the winter in their neutral beige, if your garden can handle an informal wild type design. Just be sure to cut off the plumes before they invade your neighborhood, when dry they blow all over the place and make a mess.

They are perennials and get more beautiful each year.

How and when to divide please?
