Set plants in a sunny location, spacing appropriate to the ultimate height and spread of the species. Grasses are widely tolerant of soils. Many will thrive in wet soils, and are excellent planted by the water’s edge, but many will tolerate poor, dry soils.
While grasses may require two to three seasons to become fully established, they are of the easiest, most trouble-free culture. They’ll withstand drought once established, and are virtually untouched by insects and diseases.
The only pruning needed is to annually cut back to ground level in late winter or very very early spring to allow for enjoying the dried foliage in the winter landscape. We recommend a winter mulch. Once established, clumps may require dividing from time to time. To dry, cut before seed ripens, and hang upside-down in a dark place.
