Purple Fountain Grass

Anonymous added on May 24, 2011 | Answered

We purchased and planted 3 of the purple fountain grasses last spring. They were just beautiful. . . couldn't believe how big they got. Did not prune them until this early this spring. . . cut them to 1. 5 to 2 inches of the ground. Did I cut them too short? Have seen NO growth this year and it's almost the end of May. Do I need to replace them or are they late bloomers?
