Dig a hole that is twice the depth and width of your plant and position in place securely, back filling the soil and watering thoroughly.
Cut down to the ground in late winter/early spring. They will need some form of winter protection and in colder areas it may be necessary to mulch with straw or well-rotted compost. If growing in a container, ensure the soil is kept moist throughout active growth.
It is possible to propagate Imperata by division in spring.
