Bringing Purple Fountain Grass Indoors or in the Garage in Winter

I live in the Denver area and know purple fountain grass is an annual here. However, I have it planted in a planter and am wondering if I can either bring it inside or keep it in my garage during the winter? The garage doesn’t get below freezing. I wish to preserve it for next summer. If these aren’t good ideas, what do you suggest?

Since this is only hardy to Zone 9, the chances are slim that it will survive in your garage. It needs sun, too. Some people try – it costs nothing to experiment. It will need watering, too, since it will not be dormant. Do not trim off leaves.
