Q.Lemongrass Plant

Anonymous added on June 24, 2011 | Answered

I planted a lemongrass plant last fall. It grew well, about 4 ft. high, and was lovely. Over winter, in Redlands, California, it got dry leaves. Now it is full of dry leaves and has some clusters of ‘flowers’ on it. Should I have cut it down to 1-2 feet to get rid of all the dry leaves?

Yes, I would treat it like an ornamental grass and trim it back each year. Do it now, this year, but in the future, do the trimming in either late fall or early spring.
