This is a serious question. I planted some MFG in my planters last year and now I can't figure out if they're dead or alive. They're still waving around but I'm afraid to pull them up. What should I be looking for? Any info appreciated.

They usually go brown over the winter, depending on location/weather. Since it's a grass it cabe cut down severely and come back bigger and greener than ever in late spring.
You can google it for more information.

Mine are green around the bottoms but brown above. I usually cut them back for winter but didn't this year after I read something about just letting them "be". They seem fine but I think I'll cut them back next winter as they did some shedding during strong winds and made a mess. I'm in Roseville so maybe mine are ahead of yours? I think I'd give them some more time before you give up.

Cut it back to less than 6 inches. They will be sprouting again in the spring. I grew this when I lived in Texas.
