What Is the Cold Hardiness of Purple Fountain Grass?

I am concerned about the cool hardiness that purple fountain grass will survive. I was planning on planting it in Cle Elum, WA, which can be very cold in the winter. Will it survive this area? Ronald

It will not survive the winter in your area. You can try digging some up and storing it in a basement or attached garage. That should keep it warm enough to survive the winter and it can be replanted in the spring. Just make sure to give it some water once a month or so. It does not need light and will be dormant and dead looking, but will just be "asleep" while you store it.
