My Purple grass plant has all brown leaves and I live in Florida, it was doing very well till we got alot of rain, now it looks dead, although I still have all the cat tails coming from inside the plant, the leaves look dead.

Root rot can easily kill ornamental grasses. Try pulling on the leaves at the base of the plant. If they pull out easily, it may have died off.
Clean up the plant and wait it out.
