Yet another Pampas Grass question!

kim1020(z8 Portland OR)April 9, 2005

It's looking pretty nice, only one plume but we had a rough 1st season together last year (not enough sun until I moved it... then it got happier).

Is it time for me to give it a haircut? I cut back all of my other ornamental grasses a month or so ago, but the pampas looks so nice a green, just a few yellowing blades.

I don't want to chop it down if it's not necessary.

What to do?!!?

Evergreen ornamental grasses only need to be cut back when their appearance degrades to the point that you can't stand them any longer :-)) Some of the smaller evergreen OG's I never cut back but just comb through to remove dead blades.
