The Q&A Archives: Hardy Pampas grass care

Question: We planted several Harday Pampas grass plants. They grew fast and tall very quickly. Are we supposed to cut them, Can we cut them? If so when and how much should we cut off??

Answer: It's best not to prune your pampas grass until early next spring. The tops of your plants may die off during the winter months, but even dead foliage provides some insulation to the crown of the plant. Next spring, cut away any dead foliage to make room for new. You can prune all the way down to ground level if necessary. Enjoy!
