Hi All - I am in Zone 7 and in the beginning of the year I planted 1 gallon ribbon grass I bought from a local nursery into 5 gallon containers - They look great and my question is can I leave out all winter or should I place in my unheated garage until early spring. Thank you in advance

Phalaris is generally considered hardy, in the ground, to zone 4. The common rule of thumb is you lose 2 hardiness zones in a container. That means you should be ok leaving it out.
