Zebra Grass #3


Zebra Grass Care

Planting: Choose a location with full sunlight to partial shade and well-drained soil for your Zebra Grass. Ensure proper spacing to accommodate its mature size, typically around 4 to 7 feet in height and 3 to 6 feet in spread.

Watering: Water your Zebra Grass regularly, especially during the first growing season to establish its roots. Once established, it is moderately drought-tolerant but benefits from occasional watering during prolonged dry spells.

Soil: Zebra Grass thrives in well-drained soil with a neutral to slightly acidic pH. Amend heavy or clay soils with organic matter to improve drainage and fertility.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the crown of the plant to prevent rot.

Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to promote healthy growth. Avoid over-fertilization, as it may cause the plant to become leggy.

Pruning: In late winter or early spring, cut back the previous year’s growth to about 6 inches above the ground to encourage new growth and maintain the plant’s shape. Remove any dead or damaged foliage throughout the growing season.

Protection: Zebra Grass is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, monitor for common issues such as aphids or fungal diseases, and treat promptly if necessary.

Winter Care: Leave the foliage on the plant over winter to provide protection for the crown. In early spring, before new growth emerges, trim back any dead or damaged foliage to make way for new growth.
