Q.Do You Cut Back The Plant Snow On The Mountain In Late Fall?

Zone Colordo Springs, Colorado | redheadgal60 added on January 6, 2022 | Answered

We have 4 snow on the mountain plants. Every year my husband cuts them down to the top of the soil…is that what you are suppose to do? We live in Colorado so we can get snow as early as October. We are not sure if we leave them alone and wait for new greenery to start growing in the spring or cut the whole plant down in late fall?

That is acceptable. Being an invasive species, it is ok to mow them down as often as necessary. This will control the height, but cause them to spread, laterally.

Most people will run the lawn mower any time after blooming has ended in the fall, winter or early spring.
