I have a Zebra grass which has been in the ground for nearly three years. There are a lot of white, dead looking parts to the grass and it no longer shows the distinctive stripes. Should I cut it back, cut off the dead parts and divide the plant?

Rejuvenating Miscanthus

Reply from Kathy C

Hi, Marrel,
Your instincts are spot on! It is definitely time to lift and divide your Miscanthus after three years in the ground. It is a bit late to cut back and divide, but I think you should go ahead and do it. Be sure to discard any dead parts from the centre and make sure new tranplants get plenty of water when you plant them.
Happy dividing!
