    Have you just planted this? It looks like a miscanthus grass?

    Miscanthus sinensis is also known as chinese grass  is that what you have or lemongrass you use in cooking?
    Sorry for asking more questions but is this a plant you bought, one you divided or someone gave you?
    I ask because you divide grasses in the spring.

    Its not the right time to plant a grass and it might recover next year as you are unlikely to get new growth now.
    Was the root ball soaked in a bucket of water before planting.
    Plant at same level it was in pot.
    Could get in touch with where you bought it with a photo as lots of suppliers have guarantees.
    Sorry can't help much.

    Keep it well watered and it should survive. Most of the grasses I've got are browning on the tips in this hot weather.
