Maiden Grass

with 2 comments

Our ornamental tall grass by the shop garage is in its glory this time of year and deserves a shout-out.

These batches were here before we arrived and have never been thinned. They have become so massive we are talking about some possible locations where we’d like to see them enhance the scenery were we to transplant a portion. It will be an education as we’ve never tried transplanting something of this magnitude.

We have plenty of hosta plants successfully split and transplanted, but admittedly those are a piece of cake. This will just be a little upsized version of the process.

Initial research points out the roots are very strong and it will be difficult to dig through them. We have until spring to build up our strength because early spring is the time to transplant these tall grasses.

We’d love to have more locations of big grasses because they would be a great compliment to all our big sky views.

  1. We tried splitting or moving our grasses but the massive root structure wouldn’t let us penetrate it. Finally chose to enjoy them just where they are. 😀

    • Oof. Doesn’t bode well for us. Thanks for the reference. I may need to rent a jackhammer or something.
