The Q&A Archives: No Growth On Zebra Grass

Question: I have planted zebra grass by our pool one year ago, it was
doing wonderfully last year, we have had a very wet spring
and where the zebra grass is planted it is staying very
wet, I do not see any new growth as of yet. what do you

Answer: Zebra grass should be winter hardy in your area, and it should be well over waist high by the end of May, so I suspect it may have drowned. Unfortunately, while most of the ornamental grasses appreciate ample water during the growing season. they will not tolerate a poorly drained location. I'm sorry about your plant.
