When To Trim Muhly Grass

recover from being burned

Q: Should my Muhly grass be trimmed each year in late winter to maintain proper growth?

A: Yes. Like fountain grass, maiden grass and pampas grass, it’s imperative that ornamental grasses get a yearly trim before new growth starts in early spring. I like to get mine done by late February. The height of the pruning depends on the size of the plant. Examine the brown stems to see where they stop and make your cut just above that point.
