The Q&A Archives: Division

Question: I purchased zebra grass and maiden grass from my local gardening center. I wanted to know if I could divide in the fall in zone 5-and how much to cut for new clumps?

Answer: You can divide your ornamental grasses either in the fall or in the spring. The number of divisions you can make will really depend upon how large a clump you're working with. As long as each new division has some roots and some tops, they should grow into healthy, happy new plants. Best wishes with your garden!
