Red Fountain Grass Not Coming Back

Anonymous added on May 17, 2011 | Answered

I planted red fountain grass last year around my pool and it it grew and thrived wonderfully. In late winter, we cut it back as directed and it is now May with no sign of it returning. Is it dead or am I being impatient?

This cold has damaged many plants this year, so it is possible that they did not make it due to the unusual cold. This article will help you determine if they are dead or not:

I would give them another two weeks, but if you do not see anything by then, they are likely dead.
