Super Stripe Maiden Grass Growing and Maintenance Tips

Note: This cultivar may not flower in our region, as it needs long, hot summers to produce abundant blooms.

Plants should be divided, in the spring, every few years, to maintain freshness. Foliage can be left standing all winter, however, it should be pruned early to mid-spring to make way for new growth.
