Q.Should Our Fountain Grass Be Showing Signs of Life After the Winter?

We live in New Jersey and planted fountain grass in the fall. So far there is no sign of life. Can we assume that it was killed off due to the long harsh winter we just had?

It likely was. There are several grasses sold as fountain grass. True fountain grass is not hardy in your area and would have died over the winter. When planting it in the future, make sure the variety of grass you buy is cold hardy in your area.
