Dead of winter in 9b
OK, so it's not terrible, but I'm confused about how to treat plants that never really seem to sleep. Cyperus (papyrus), Hawaiian snow bush, heliconia and lemongrass among others.
I could post about each one separately, but the issue is the same: do I prune them back or not? I could knock the lemongrass down from it's present height of 7', including seed plumes as you would a purple fountain grass, I could take out each flowering cyperus stalk, I could trim...well, you get the idea, but I really can't tell if these plants need to be reminded it's time to re-group.
