Q. Maiden Grass Won’t Bloom

My Maiden Grass did not bloom this year. I think I am infested with grubworms, so therefore the skunks are feasting on our lawn. Could the grubworms be feasting on my Maiden Grass? Do you think the Maiden Grass will bloom next year?

Q. Miscanthus dying over Wisconsin winter

I have 6 miscanthus plants that still look dead. Was it a hard winter for them? Shouldn’t they be growing by now?

A.

This is a warm-season grass, hardy to zones 5-9. The weather has been a bit on the weird side though, and it takes about 3 weeks or so of consistent warm temps to push the plants out of dormancy. It still may have life in it and may surprise you, so don't give up just yet.

That said, this article may help determine if your plants are dead or still sleeping: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm

Q. Maiden grass not growing

I have 3 clumps of maiden grass . They are 2 years old and are in southern Maine 2 blocks from the ocean. They get afternoon sun. This year all 3 are dead although a different ornamental grass is fine.

Should I replace them?

Should I try something else?

What could have caused them to die? I cut them back in late October.
