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)

I had better check then gardenmaiden.  I dismissed the idea of planting this because of its reputation to invade.  Always ready to learn something new.

Since your pieris has "perished" also it does suggest lime intolerance.  Cement used for your slabs would have a high alkalinity content.   

I don't think lawn treatments are the cause judging by the appearance of those needles.  I suspect alkalinity and mite issues in the summer.  

Can you pot it into ericaceous compost for a while and see if it recovers Somapop?
