Re: Ornamental Grasses-spreaders/clumpers/shade

<< I have had no problems planting out my grasses in the fall as long as they 
 were well rooted in their pots, I just cover them a little deep with more 
 soil if they are spreaders or provide them with a light covering if they are 
 clumpers. >>

Paul, that's interesting.  What is it about spreading roots that they can 
take the deeper soil, but the clumpers can't?

p.s.  At Green Value Nursery where I used to work, they planted the giant 
Miscanthus floridulus as shade for their hostas!  One of the pix in the Shady 
Oaks 2000 catalog (pp91)is taken from this area at Green Value.  It's the top 
left hand pic with the bench in it.
