Purple Fountain Grass Died

Last year I purchased three plants and enjoyed them all year. They did not come back; all I have is dead stalks. Do they not tolerate frost?

Purple fountain grass is generally not hardy if the temps go below 20F. This year we experienced a lot of cold weather in the US, so the cold may have killed it in your area. Give it a few weeks to see if it grows back.
