I noticed that the foxtail grass frowing in my garden went from green to the picture below.

Is it flowerting or getting ready to seed or something, and should I cut it down?

Thanks in advance.




It's flowering Alex. Cutting it down or keeping it is up to you. If you leave it, it will produce seeds - again it's your choice if you let it or stop it by dead heading.

It's a sort of pollen that it produces. If you leave it you will have more next year.

O.K. Thank you. I think that I may keep it as it is quite a nice ornamental grass.
