Zebra grass - Knowledgebase Question

Windsor, ON
Question by Louisa987

Last year I planted zebra grass. It did fine. This spring I cut down the dead leaves down to the stump. The new shoots are growing on the outside of the dead stump and it doesn't look very nice. Is there something else I can do? Louisa

Zebra grass eventually grows into a wide clump and cutting the foliage down in winter (or early spring) is just what your plant needs. I expect that as it grows, the new foliage will hide the stump - but if it is really unattractive, you can dig the plant and divide it, removing the dead stub and replanting the healthy clumps. Best wishes with your garden!
