Is there a pest or disease that I should watch for on my ornamental grass?

Ornamental Grass Health

Ornamental grasses are not prone to pests or diseases. Ornamental grasses are generally the healthiest plants in the garden. However, you may have an occasional animal come to nibble on your grass such as a deer or a rabbit.

In some areas of the United States there is a fungal disease known as Rust that may occasionally afflict ornamental grasses. You will know you have Rust if you see orange spots on the leaves of your grass. If you do see Rust, you should clip off the spotted leaves and dispose of them. Never put diseased leaves on your compost pile.
