Q.Dividing And Over Wintering Purple Fountain Grass In Canada Zone 3

Zone Canada zone 3 (an hour north of Edmonton) | Anonymous added on September 24, 2021 | Answered

How do I over winter purple fountain grass? I’m in Canadian zone 3. Will the grass survive if I divide the plants, put the divisions into pots, and bring them inside. What do they need for care to winter them over?

Bring purple fountain grass inside a frost-free area that stays above 40 degrees F (4.4 C) or inside a cool room in the home. Cut it back and water carefully during the winter. Don't let it dry out, but be sure not to overwater.
