Do I cut this back for winter? Mine grows about 10 ft high and looks splendid even when brown! Should I just leave it or is it better to cut it back? Talking here about zebra grass.

On plant Miscanthus sinensis



You can either cut it down, or leave it till spring and pull the dead off then.

I find that it's better to leave all grasses, deciduous OR evergreen until the early spring to deal with. They look wonderful with frost on them!

Make sure you cut it back before the new shoots appear, though!
