Center of perennials dead

22 days ago

I’ve had 2 large perennial clumps die in the center.

The first is a large blue oat grass clump. It is growing all around the edge and looks stupid. I’m wondering if this is just a normal progression. Did the clump just get too big and choke out the center?

I’m not relishing the thought of digging out the grass, but I don’t think there’s any other way to restore it.

The second one is my cushion spurge. It was picture perfect last spring. This year only a piece is alive.

I’m worried about digging up the cushion spurge though. My research says they don’t like to be disturbed. What do you experienced gardeners suggest?

Here’s a picture of it last year, and now.
