June 4, 2017: Maintenance performed (2017 Dug up 2 specimens a few days ago, divided into four specimens and waiting to be transplanted to new homes! Fall 2017, just couldn't find the time to plant all four. Lost three, but planted one in the front by the driveway. Perfect location....very happy!!)

Have
Ornamental Grasses
2011- New
Water during extreme drought conditions. Workhorse in the garden! Thriving very well to date!!🙋
May 23, 2018: Miscellaneous Event (Our winter weather extended in to early May, this year, and this specimen is looking really scraggly. Sad I've noticed that ornamental grasses in commercial landscapes are struggling too, so my guess is this unusually cold Spring is the culprit. Hoping it will bounce back, this year. Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! )
Image Zebra Grass (Miscanthus sinensis 'Zebrinus')
Have
Ornamental Grasses
(2) Planted in Mixed Living Fence Garden. Southern most specimen thriving. The other is struggling with morning shade.
2017 Northern specimen has more sun, now that the old tree is gone. Southern specimen thriving!
2018 Expecting them both to be filled out, we had extended Winter temps, and they were looking pathetic. Was going to split the southern specimen, this year, but decided not to bc of the Winter stress. That specimen is now thriving! The northern specimen has filled out some.
May 23, 2018: Miscellaneous Event (Our winter weather extended in to early May, this year, and I'm afraid I lost one specimen completely, and the other is looking really scraggly. Sad I've noticed that ornamental grasses in commercial landscapes are struggling too, so my guess is this unusually cold Spring is the culprit. Hoping it will bounce back, this year. Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers! )
