Pampas grass is considered as one of the most beautiful ornamental grasses with many splendid qualities.
It adds colour and form to the garden from September until February, with striking feathery plumes which are held high above a dense clump of evergreen foliage.
Plant any of these late-flowering eye-catchers in a mixed border at the back where the flower plumes will stand proud. They are remarkably tough and adaptable but prefers an open, sunny spots with good air circulation and fertile, well-drained soil.
How to take care for Cortaderia pampas grass
The only maintenance job is cutting back the flowering stems and old foliage in spring. A major advantage is that they are resistant to drought and freezing temperatures when established.
We recommend trying pampas grass with plants that have a more rounded or horizontal habit or whose purple-tinged foliage contrasts beautifully with the straw-coloured pampas grasses.
