Life Expectancy of Large Grasses

How long can a large grass like miscanthus live? Many years, but in the north, they may winter kill, growing lopsided in the spring. Dense bunch grasses tend to die in the center, the growing environment there is not as good as the edge of the plant. The hard dry center can die in many perennials, not just grasses. Division becomes necessary. IMG_0070
