Problems with late season ornamental prairie grasses?

Has anyone else noticed growing problems with late season grasses this year? My Miscanthus, Pennisetum and others are very slow to get going this year looking very weak and even dry, which I’ve never seen before! I wondered if the dry spring means the water table isn’t there that they’re normally used too :thinking:

I was contemplating posting about a similar thing a week or so ago!
I have two Pennisetum that have been really slow, interesting…

Very interesting, thanks for posting Thomas. I guess we can both keep an eye on them and share our experiences! Where abouts are you based? I’m in London where it’s been very dry this year, particularly in April.

Yep London too. East to be specific. I have a new (this year) Pennisetum macrourum that has done really well. But then two others, not 100% sure on their species tbh, that have been super slow compared to the last two years in the same spot.
