Q.My pampas grass turned black and half of it died

Zone Virginia | midnightsk added on June 3, 2015 | Answered

My pampas grass took a big hit during 2 weeks of ice and snow this past winter. A lot of it turned black and died while parts are still green. How do I fix this? I live in Virginia Beach and we had 2 back to back hard weeks of snow and ice. How do I heal this plant? It looks terrible but has some green to it.

This has been a recurring question for us this spring with visitors to Gardening Know How.
Pampas grass seems to have been hit hard with the cold winter that most of the United States suffered.

You could feed a balanced fertilizer to help boost some of the signs of regrowth.
Your Pampas will likely recover but it just will take time.
