My question is regarding Purpe Pennisetum Xadvena Rubrum or Purple Fountain Grass. It is my understanding that this plant is hardy to Zone 9 - 10. Will this grass winter in minnesota - will it come back the next year if planted in the ground? The grass in my yard usually dies every winter as well, so it seems a natural question for this other grass... Thank you in advance for your response.

It is not hardy in Minnesota, you might be able to winter it over by bringing it inside or into a greenhouse.
