@pirl I see that you have this plant. I started with one but it reseeded the first time it went to seed and I want to know the best time and the best way to transplant this grass to other areas. I am hoping that you or someone else can give me some advice. Thanks, Jeanne

I've never had any luck with this plant. Wish I could help but I can't.

I have 'Elijah Blue' and it has reseeded on its own here and there. What is interesting (to me) is my chickens will not touch it, and I now have several clumps growing in the chicken yard, which makes a nice little splash against the bare dirt. If you are getting seedlings, I'd just move them where you want them in the spring or fall.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Thanks Arlene and Deb,
I have several large clumps and a few small clumps of them behind my garage which has afternoon shade. I don't want them to spread any more there so today I cut all the seeds off of them which I also did last year. I am going to try to move them to my road bank that I am trying to make into a flower bed. It will have afternoon sun. But that task will have to wait cause I have so much else that needs to get done first.

I have Elija Blue and beyond blue. I am in the pacific northwest. They reseed readily, but they are so easy to pull up, I don't mind. After about three years or less, mine die out in the center. I get about three plants out of these, and they do look ugly without dividing. I have given a ton away, they just grow like crazy here. I transplant these any time of year with success. They love some compost in the planting hole. Just give water often after moving them the first year. I find mine like the roots cut a bit, when moving them. They do best in full sun for me and like water about once a week. I have yet to remember to cut them back in winter or early early spring, so I take a rake and whack them to remove the dry grass.
