I was thinking today that I cut back my very tall Shasta daisies this time of year to keep them more compact and stop them from flopping.
I have several very tall grasses and was wondering if I could take off about 6 inches from them about now and keep them more upright through the season. Would it damage them permanently? Look weird? Or, for whatever reason not be advisable?

If you cut ornamental grasses after the grass has turned green, you will give the grass a un-even look like getting a flat top haircut. That's why its best to cut the grass while its dormant in the Winter.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
