I live in El Paso, Texas where summers are typically very mild; however, there were two freeze periods this winter and I don't know if my purple fountain grass plants survived. I don't see any new growth, where as by this time last year they were growing well. Is there anything I can do, or is it too late?

It is hardy to about 20 degrees F. But if the temps there got lower than that, there is a chance the roots survived if the ground did not freeze. I would give it a few weeks to see if the roots start to grow new leaves. If you do not see any growth in a few weeks, it is likely dead.
