Is my Rubrum okay?

I planted Rubrum last fall and it took beautifully. Spring arrived and it is just a bunch of dried out bamboo shoots. Should I cut back the dried stalks? Will it come back?

Thanks so much..just found this site and I am sure it will help me out with my not-so-green thumb!

Chances are it's dead. Purple Fountain Grass is not reliably hardy below zone 9.

Sorry but most likely it is dead. It is a summer annual in all but the warmest zones.
