Your ornamental grass will winter better if you leave the foliage on the plant. Besides looking interesting in the winter garden, the foliage will eventually collapse over the crowns of the plants and provide some insulation during the cold weather. In the spring you can either cut or pull up on the spent grass blades to remove them from the garden. Enjoy your garden!
