Somapop, nothing to lose by trying it in a pot of ericaceous.  It may recover during the spring.  I would also spray with sequestered iron.  If it recovers then you can consider planting it out but test new site first.

ah Dsve!  Great minds

Miscanthus losing clumps?

Posted: 01/03/2016 at 17:52

I wonder if that is stipa gigantea jekyl.  It has been very wet and stipa will hate that.  

Miscanthus will cope pretty well with moisture...some varieties demand it.....and they are very tough so I don't think your grass is miscanthus. 

(I place a sheet of glass over my gigantea over winter that works well)
