What grass is this?

mfran12345April 8, 2014

Can anyone tell me what grass that is and what I need to do to it now that spring is here? It came planted already with the house we got in late fall. Do I need it cut it down low for spring? It's almost too tall at this point so how low can I cut it and have it not die? Thanks

Looks to be some variety of Miscanthus sinensis. It should be cut back now.....as close to the ground as you can manage or where you see any new growth starting.
