Purple Fountaingrass

How do I know if my purple fountaingrass is going to come back?

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Purple fountaingrass is a tender perennial that's only hardy in Zones 9-10, so if you're in an area that's colder than that (if your winters, on average, see temperatures colder than about 25 degrees), I'd assume it's not going to come back unless you try to overwinter it in a greenhouse or other protected place.
