When is the best time to cut back the tall leaves of C. lucifer? I usually cut off the bloom stocks once they are all done blooming. This year some leaves have turned brown and some are still green in September.
I also want to dig them up and separate them into more plantings. Any suggestions?
I am having the same question myself, I planted lucifer and need to know do I dig them up, mulch them over, cut the leaves off or what? I've actually had a few sprout some short flower stems from the base and are blooming now but the foliage is looking like its starting to die back or could be from the high temps and drought and now from 90's to highs in mid-60's yesterday and today.
