How to take care of Schizachyrium scoparium Standing Ovation 12 cm
Grow in well-drained soil and choose a sunny to partial sunny position. Avoid over watering and over fertilizing. This can cause flopping and weak tissues that can lead to disease. But if you have to fertilize then use a slow release or low-medium rate fertilizer. Water well after planting and for the next few weeks to help it get settled. Drought tolerant once established. No serious insect or disease problems. Cut to the ground in late winter to early spring before the new growth starts to appear, but after the cold weather is over. Cut back to about 3-4" (8-10cm) from the crown of the plant.
