Purple Fountain Grass, Annual or Perennial
I live in the foothills of the Ozark Mts. near Hardy, Arkansas. Is purple fountain grass going to be winter hardy here and return in the spring?

Purple fountain grass is only hardy to about 20F. If temps in your area get colder than that thduring winter, it will die. In most places, it needs additional winter protection to make it through the winter.
