See how it progresses through the season. If it doesnt get better you may want to divide the grasses next Feb/March. Steve
I love Zebra Grass... I have two in my yard for several years now. Both are up this spring as expected but both have very little stripping that makes this plant unique Will it show up later Should I fertilize How do I get back the stripe Both planting areas are getting mostly sun with some light shade during mid day... no standing water though we are at sea level about 60 miles inland in Zone 7-8... sandy soil for the most part... Thanks
