Foxtail Ferns

heykate added on December 6, 2017 | Answered

My foxtail fern leaves(s) have all yellowed as colder weather has set in. I live in southeastern Michigan. Instructions seem to be to cut back yellowed parts, but in this case it would be the entire plant. Is it dead? Thank you. Kate

Yes, your plant is dying for the winter. This can only be grown in tropical zones as a perennial. In your area it will be an annual. You will have to replant every year, or keep it as a houseplant. Here is an article for more information:
