How To Transplant Sea Oat Grass?

Q: I would like to transplant sea oat grass from my daughter’s house to mine.
When is the best time and method?

A: Sea oats, Chasmanthium latifolium, are so easy to transplant that they will
practically walk themselves over from your daughter’s house. Just dig a clump
there and plant it at the same height in the soil at your house. You could
harvest the brown seeds from her plants as well. Warning: sea oats can
become too friendly if they find nice environments in which to spread around
your house. Keep an eye out for unwanted grassy sprouts in spring. Pull them
out while the roots are still shallow.
