Q.How Can I Keep My Red Fountain Grass Red

Zone 24 | Anonymous added on August 4, 2013 | Answered

I planted two in good sun but they are losing their red color. Both the shoots and the plumes. I live in the San Diego area, about 4 miles from the coast. Am I over watering or using the wrong soil?

New growth is the brightest color. As it ages, it attains a greener cast. If you want a bright red, you will need to prune the plant to encourage new growth.
