Japanese Blood Grass Pruning

Zone Eastlake, Ohio 44095 | kats1274 added on April 17, 2017 | Answered

My Japanese blood grass is full of brown leaves, and my question is, do I leave them alone and allow new growth to take over, or should I trim back some of the brown leaves to propagate new growth?

It is a good idea to prune Japanese blood grass in spring to improve its appearance and growth. Trim it back to 4-6 inches off the ground. Don't cut lower than that to avoid damaging the growing crown of the plant.
