The Q&A Archives: cold hardiness zone

Question: well my purple fountain grass be ok in the michigan cold weather? if not what can i do

Answer: Your zip code places you in zone 5B. Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum' is only hardy to zone 8 and unfortunately there is nothing you can do to help it survive a Michigan winter. Many gardeners like this plant so much they are willing to grow it as an annual and replace it each spring. I'm sorry.
