Fall is the right time to divide Seslaria. And, I'm going to attempt to divide and transplant first-year Seslaria Autumnalis. Why? Because I've been so happy with them up front this year. I identified the three largest plants in front - like the one below - and dug up and split it in two. I wanted to improve the ring around the tree-swing tree with something more interesting - so I moved the new divisions to sit in between the Christmas Tree hostas that I moved here last year. These are behind the Summer Beauty Allium divisions from last year, too. Below is a look at some of the divisions and where they went in the backyard. I tucked the original plants back in, too. Now they were just half-the-size. There's a photo above of a TINY division. I'm not counting that, so, we're calling this a +3 free plants for Fall Dividing. I'm posting this in November 2023, but I did this dividing and transplanting in mid-October 2023.

Last year, with the huge mass of Autumn Ferns that I planted late and didn't come back have scarred me a bit . That fear didn't stop me from adding three more new (to me) plants on the same trip to The Growing Place. I was wandering around the grass area and came across these small quart-sized grasses you see above. Short in nature. Nice seed heads. I pulled out the plant tag and see this below from Hocus Pocus Groundcovers: Sesleria 'Greenlee Hybrid' - Greenlee's Moor Grass. Thanks to the Front Porch bed exploration from earlier this year , I was somewhat familar with some Seslerias and ended up buying and planting a number of Seslaria Autumnalis from Northwind . They&
