Planting Shenandoah switch grass

Zone Milwaukee WI 53221 | Anonymous added on April 28, 2018 | Answered

I bought some Shenandoah switch grass thinking it was a annual. But finding out it isn't I wanted to plant in a big ceramic pot, can I still plant in the pot and redo in the ground in fall?

It is fine to transplant switch grass, but it's best to transplant in early spring- it is a warm season grass that does most of its growing in summer, so this will give it a better chance to get established. However, transplanting in fall might work too. Switch grass is pretty tough.
