    Thank you, I think you're right.

    Ha! No way man. This is a new clients house I snapped the pic while there measuring her lawn. I see these everywhere and never knew what they were. I try to take notes of all plants around the landscape on each property I maintain. Should they not look this way at this time of year? :confused:

    They're fine they are just dormant.

    Cut them back to the ground in the next few weeks. New growth should sprout in the spring.

    For fuller plants, pinch/cut them back by 1/3, the first of june and first of july.
