Can Carex and Fescue Grasses Grow in Gritty Mix?

last month
last modified: last month

Can wild grasses like Deschampsia cespitosa "Tufted Hair Grass" or various Carex or Blue Fescue grow in gritty mix? I have a few of these that were neglected in the original nursery containers and needed to get in the ground. I put them in with a succulent planting in gritty mix, and they seem to immediately head south and are either dead or close to death. Is this just an issue of needing extra water, or do these just want soil with better water retention?
