Purple Fountain Grass

Have I Killed My Purple Fountain Grass?


Anonymous added on April 26, 2014 | Answered

I have three purple fountain grass plants. They exploded last summer. Back in the fall, I cut these back to about a foot off the ground. Now everything is putting out new growth except my fountain grass. There is no sign at all of new growth. Have I killed these things or are they slow starters in the spring?

These generally begin new growth in late spring to early summer. Could be that temps have not gotten warm enough yet for yours to emerge. Be patient. However, here is an article to help you determine if it is dead or just on a slow start: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
