The Q&A Archives: Purple Fountain Grass

Question: I have the above grass and after the winter it needs to be trimmed since all the branches are dried out and brown, how do I trim it, last year I trimmed it so low it died.

Answer: The best practice is to wait until you see new growth and then prune back (or pull out) the dead foliage. It may be slow to show new growth so be patient with it!
