Maintenance requirements for this plant are few. Blades that revert to solid green should be removed. It is best to remove the browned blades after the first freeze since the winter color and structure add little to the winter landscape. Propagate by division in the spring.

Fertilize with Plant-tone approximately April 1st, May 20th, July 4th, August 15th & October 30th.  Keep granular fertilizers off foliage and away from stems and trunks.  Use 1/2 the recommended rate of fertilizer for new plantings.
