Q.Wilted Purple Fountain Grass

Anonymous added on May 25, 2011 | Answered

I was wondering if my purple fountain grass will bounce back, I recently bought the plants and transplanted into a bigger container. The day I did it on was about 70 degrees. It did fine the first 2 days and then we had 2 days of high 80’s temps and both days it wilted. The books say it likes warm temps and full sun. Was it just too hot and will they bounce back?

They should. Plants in containers should be watered once a day and twice a day in temps over 85 F. This will help stop the wilting in the future.
