Most grasses are cut back this time of the year, they do grow back.

Stipa tenuissima is an evergreen grass and they often dont like being cut back. This stipa will shoot up very quickly after being cut back, almost overnight, but will then sulk and may die. Its better with evergreen grasses to run gloved hands thru them to try to pull out the dead bits, rather than chopping themdown.
