Should I Prune My Lemon Verbena

Anonymous added on March 23, 2014 | Answered

I have a lemon verbena plant that I thought had died due to the bark getting all brown. However, I left the plant in the pot and it's now started to grow new leaves, both on the brown stems and a new one. Should I remove the brown stems in spite of the fact that they are growing leaves? I don't want to kill the plant, but I'm not sure the brown stems are the right thing to have. Would a new plant grow from the green stems that are growing at the base?

Yes, you can cut back any dead/brown growth just to where the new growth is beginning to come in.
