This winter was particularly cold for most of the U.S. It is possible that it simply got too cold. Another possibility is that if the area it is growing is too wet, it cannot tolerate that over the winter. Here is an article to help you determine if it is dead or just on a slow start:

Q. How Much Water Does Fountain Grass Need

I have potted my fountain grass in large pots and I have noticed that it is not as green as it was a few days ago. It is in the sun.

Plants in pots should be watered daily during the summer. If temps are getting above 85F, you may want to consider watering twice a day.

Q. Fountain Grass/Ornamental Grass

We live in eastern Washington, and I would like to know if red fountain grass will do ok in our area? Also, how do other fountain grass and ornamental grass do in this climate?

Hardy red fountain grass thrives in Zone 5-9, but in cooler zones it should be treated as an annual. Your area (Zone 8) should be fine for growing this ornamental grass.

Q. Red Fountain Grass

Why is my red fountain grass turning brown like it is burned? It gets a lot of water.

There are several reasons this could be happening. First, it could be that it has a fungus, either on the leaves or on the roots. Another possibility is that it is getting too little or too much water. And yet another possibility is that it has a pest of some kind.

Check the roots and leaves carefully for signs of pests or damage. Make sure the soil is not too dry or too wet and it can't hurt to treat the plant with a fungicide.

Q. Little Bunny Fountain Grass

We have two little bunny grass plants, which were planted in mid spring. Both of the plants receive full sunlight and are watered on a daily basis. For some reason, they are both browning in the middle and it is spreading outwards. What can we do to take care of these plants?

Prune it back and apply a fungicide.
