For best results with Molinia caerulea Dauerstrahl grasses (Purple Moor Grass), plant them in full sun or partial shade, in fertile, moist, but well drained soil, though they will tolerate drier soils once established and can cope with dry soils and hard Winters.  Cut back old growth close to ground level in early Spring.
