    Picked up 4 Karl Forester grasses, and 3 russian sage today, can't wait to get these plants in the ground!

    I started a small Russian sage last spring and it had the appearance of a mature plant by fall. I found it easy to clone. I took three cuttings of firm but still pliable stems and dipped them in rooting hormone and into potting soil. Two of them are thriving under grow lights until I can set them out. One of three did not take. I like this plant so much, I'd have one even if I weren't doing dryland gardening. It is well suited to this environment near Reno, NV.

Top Plants that Thrive in Clay Miscanthus Miscanthus bears silvery seed heads that seem to glow in the late-summer and autumn sunshine. This ornamental grass grows nearly anywhere, from soggy soil to sun-baked clay. It can drop a lot of seedlings, so deadhead the plumes as they mature to keep it from becoming weedy in your garden. Name: Miscanthus selections Zones: 4-9
