The Q&A Archives: hardy pampas grass

Question: How and when do we go about cutting down our hardy pampas grass for the winter if at all?

Answer: Now is not the time to cut down your pampas grass. Pruning will encourage new growth which will sap energy from the plant since the foliage will die down in a few short weeks. Wait until early spring to prune. You can cut the clump down to ground level then and new leaves will emerge when the weather warms up. Best wishes with your landscape.
