Trimming can help ornamental grasses

February 21, 2002


Cut back ornamental grasses and liriope in advance of fresh growth in late winter.

Grasses can be gathered with string and sawed with a pruning saw. But grasses like liriope, or lily turf, should be cut with hand pruners.

Grasses should be cut to 3 to 4 inches above the soil line.

New growth will emerge from the plant crown as the temperatures get warmer.
