Cut / Trim Tall Grass? Saccharum [Erianthus?] ravennae
From some quick google image research, I've determined we have saccharum ravennae.
A neighbor recommended cutting down our 2 ornamental grasses as "spring maintenance". We planted them 5 years ago as little grass clumps and they are both easily 10' tall now. They get basically zero maintenance and whatever water nature provides.
We like them and are not opposed to the advice but think taking them down to 6" (the recommendation) is a bit drastic.
They are not multiplying, we are nowhere near a wetland...I've done some searching but no one really mentions an annual buzz-cut. Is it good advice to cut these guys down soon (long green leaves and all??)?
