Cutting Back Carex

richardcharles(z10/Malibu)March 6, 2007

I have both Carex divulsa(Carex tumulicola) and Carex glauca growing and doing well. Some of the Berkeley Sedge has brown ends and the Blue Sedge's color is not as clear as it was in summer. Is it too late to cut back now, how much to cut back, or wait for spring to improve there vigor?

I'd try the comb-through method first to try and clean up the foliage. If your still not happy with how they look, trim them back. It may actually be good for them to flush out new growth in zone 10...a little psuedo-dormancy to re-invigorate them perhaps?
