Hey All -
Need help figuring out if / when I can transplant ornamental grasses. Specifically the type in the attached photo (name escapes me). Anything I need to know? Anything I should or shouldn't do?

Now is the time to transplant ornamental grasses; they should only be transplanted/divided when they are in full growth, not when they are dormant (unlike most other plants). Dig it up, do what you want (divide, move it), replant it quickly without letting it dry out, and keep it well watered. It should have plenty of time to establish new roots before the ground freezes.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
