Pampas Grass

My Pampas Grass Turned Black and Half of It Died

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.

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.
