Q.Should Licorice Plant Be Cut Back Before Spring?

Zone Lake Forest, CA 92630. Zone 22 Sunset Western Garden Book | Anonymous added on February 21, 2021 | Answered

My garden is in Southern CA. My three limelight helichrysum ground cover plants are gorgeous and huge. It is time to fertilize and freshly mulch all of the plants they surround. Should I cut them back severely to expose the ground?

Yes, I would, otherwise they will grow over your other plants. Licorice vine is also used in containers or spilling over edges.
