Why are my Stipa not growing, one I have had for 3 years. I have moved it once but nothing has happened!

On plant Stipa gigantea



Though from Portugal, Stipa gigantea is quite hardy so long as it's in well drained soil. I presume it was alive when moved? When was it moved and did you take a good rootball when lifted?

Are yours in a lot of shade? I have one that has grown rather large beside my path and regularly attacks the postman in the morning with its fronds if I don't keep it very well trimmed back. It did not get any special attention, or feeding.

Mine gets the morning sun and is in loamy soil.
