The Q&A Archives: Ornamental Grass

Question: My stripped Ornamental Grass is falling over and leaving a big void in the center. How can I avoid this? Should I stake the grass?

Answer: I think the grass would look unnatural if you tried to stake it upright. Sometimes rain, or water from the hose can make stands of ornamental grasses lay down instead of standing upright. There's not much you can do to make your wayward grass stand up straight except, perhaps, to divide it next spring so the clump is smaller which would make it less apt to fall over. Wish I had another solution for you.
