Liriope – Pruning

Q: The liriope our subdivision entrance has not been cut back and looks tattered. Is May too late in the year to prune it back?

A: I wouldn’t mow it down now but if it’s not a terribly big patch you can use hedge trimmers to cut off the brown leaves just above the new growth. Fertilize and water afterwards and the resulting new growth will hide the clipped leaves.
