Purple Fountain Grass in a Large Pot

Harviehouse added on May 8, 2015 | Answered

I just planted my purple fountain grass in a large pot. The ends of the grass look dry and dead. Any ideas for me? They were planted a couple of weeks ago. Some of the grass looks brown and dead but the other half is still purple. I'm worried it will die. I live in central Utah.

Did the plant experience a cold spell after watering?
Did the pot receive adequate water?
Watering is most likely the issue for a newly planted pot.
You could try trimming back the part of the plant that appears dry.
If the roots are still alive, your Fountain grass should start to regrow.
