how to prune diarama


By Casey

do you cut it to the ground like a pampas grass? if so when? how short.I know if you split it ,it may not flower for two years or more.




My book just says to remove faded flower stems and foliage as it dies down.

I leave mine alone and then in the spring i remove the dead stems/leaves. they can look tatty but when frosted they look stunning.

Do as Seaburngirl says that is absolutely the right thing to do.
