Karl Foerster Feather Reed Driveway Grasses - September 2021

Putting this photo in the [garden diary] here to show what the trio of Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grasses look like in late September, 2021.  The formal name for this sport is: Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster', so I should start calling them that in these posts, right?

Photo below shows all three of them putting on a lovely, golden show with their reeds standing tall and the grass blades turning a bit rusty, but still providing a lot of interest.  These grasses are sandwiched between our driveway, our front way, our front stoop and the front porch.

I showed these same grasses in July of this year when they have a lightweight almost-purple look to them and now have them planted in four spots (two in back, two in front). 

Compare that photo above with the photo in this post (that I'll paste below) from early October 2019 - just about 2 years ago.

They look about the same, right?  That makes me think they've hit maturity and might be time to divide them?  I noticed some potential "center rot" in one of them this Spring, so I'm thinking that I should either divide them this Fall (like right now!) or remember to put "Divide these grasses" on my 2022 to-do list is going to be in order for next Spring.
