I planted Fountain Grass along a wooden fence and it grew beautifully to about 2.5-3 feet tall in Central Texas. Now it is drooping over. We have been watering every two days with a drip hose. Is the drooping caused by not enough water in this heat or too much water? We are still in the growing season. What do you suggest to get it to stand up again?

Was this a new planting this spring?
New plants will need a regular watering schedule the first year to establish a good root system.
After they are established they will need occasional water with more during drought.
Pull back the much to check the soil moisture level. Deep waterings are necessary to get roots established.
