Fountain grass

Zone Myrtle Beach South Caolina | gg2yl1 added on August 22, 2017 | Answered

I have purple fountain grass growing in a large crock with mums. My fountain grass went flat after 2 years (winter and summer) I live in South Carolina. I leave the grass outside in a crock year round. Should I be bringing the grass indoors?

Purple fountain grass is hardy down to zone 9, and South Carolina is in zones 7 and 8. And when you grow plants in pots, the roots are more exposed to cold and their hardiness is reduced even more. I would bring the crock indoors.
