Q.Giant Burgundy Fountain Grass

Anonymous added on May 20, 2014 | Answered

I live in Cincinnati, Ohio and planted a few of the giant burgundy fountain grass last summer. It is now late May and the grass has no new growth. Do you think it is dead, as the color is still tan and dormant? The plants got very large and then I cut them down to about 8 inches in late fall.

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
