Pruning Purple Fountain Grass

vedwards added on July 6, 2011 | Answered

I bought fountain grass on sale. It hadn't been watered for awhile. Besides watering it and keeping out of the hot sun for awhile, should I trim the droopy, dry grass or will that kill it completely?

I would say yes, go ahead and prune it back but merely give it a good trim rather than a hard prune. Save that for late winter/early spring. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/foliage/fountain-grass/fountain-grass-pruning.htm
