Cutting down Unchinia rubra?

United Kingdom Gb

Do you give this plant a haircut like most grasses.If not what do you do about the dead grass in spring which totally spoils the red colour

On plant Uncinia rubra



No haircut - just comb out old leaves with your hands (with gloves on) or a hand fork.
