The Q&A Archives: Dividing pompas grass

Question: It is now June. I have been told that it is too late to divide my pompas grass. What is the best rule of thumb, and how late can I successfully divide the large clumps?

Answer: In my experience the best time to divide the ornamental grasses is in early spring just as they begin to grow. I would not do it this late in the season, no.
