For best results with Molinia grasses, plant them in full sun (though they will tolerate partial shade),  in fertile, moist, but well drained soil, though they will tolerate drier soils once established. Cut and comb out the last year’s flower stems and dead leaves in late winter or early Spring. Divide congested plants in Spring.
