Purple Fountain Grass and Pink Muhly Grass

If you grow grasses, you know that after a few years they tend to hollow out in the center.  When this happens, the correct thing to do is divide.  I also saw an article that said to use a drill in the soil and new grass will grow.  I tried that with my Pink Muhly Grass Muhlengergia capillaris and it didn't work.  I was too lazy to divide it this year so instead, I planted a Purple Fountain Grass Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum'  in the hole. Sometimes you just have to break the rules!
