My poor Giganteus

And my other grasses too. It rained all night then turned to snow this morning. When I took the pictures the snow had turned back to rain. (which has now turned back to snow)

Our record hot summer came to an abrupt end.

Oh dear they do look a mess,but being grasses with intercalary meristems they should bounce back.

Ugh! That's awful! It hit 80 (and humid) here today, and as I was working in the garden, I was thinking how nice it'll be when cool weather gets here, but that's a little much.

Ewwwwww!! That really sucks :o(
Hot & dry here too but, they are forcasting much cooler weather in the next couple of days - I sure hope it is nothing like what you got. We still have peppers and tomatoes in the garden.

Lets hope your grasses all pop-up in a day or two.

The grasses have recovered quite nicely, thank goodness. Giganteus doesn't look as good as it once did. What I find odd about this plant is that last year the plumes were dark red and this year they are a beige color. In fact, last year was the only year the plumes were red. I wonder what caused that.
