    Hate to ask a stupid question, but here goes..... I got a new customer, lots of lirope in the beds as borders. Was not cut back before winter cold hit . Is it too late to trim it back? They look like hell! I live in Northern nc at the va border.

    We usually cut back liriope at the end of winter. Just look to see how tall the new growth is and be careful not to cut into those tender new leaves. I tell my clients, a military haircut in March for the liriope.

    Thanks Lanelle, I've never cut any back this late, so I thought I'd ask first. Kev
