When To Cut Back Purple Fountain Grass The best time to trim the purple grass is in the early spring or late winter. Although exact timing is not very important, make sure you prune the pennisetum grass before it starts growing actively. Avoid pruning during the fall as the grass has not yet dried back all the way.
