Description
Pampas Grass is the world-famous plant that creates a monumental specimen clump, 8 ft. tall or taller, wherever it grows. In either pink or white, any planting of this grass creates a very dramatic effect. The huge plumes are often dried and used in large vases for interior decorating.

The name Pampas comes from the region of South America (Argentina) which is a huge area of rangeland called The Pampas. It is a major region for the raising of Argentina's famous beef cattle.

Not Recommended for California: The California Native Plant Society warns about the invasive qualities of another species of pampas grass in regions along the California coast and on nearby Pacific islands. This species, Cortederia selloana is not as invasive as other varieties, C. jubata, but still considered a risk for those areas.

      Not even a 3

      Comments about American Meadows Pampas Grass Pink Feather - Plant:

      They sent a clump of grass smaller than the 3" container. And it hadn't even been watered. Only 1 blade of grass is alive and it is questionable if it will survive at all.

      Comments about American Meadows Pampas Grass Pink Feather - Plant:

      Six snows and very bitter cold was too much for the Pink Pampas Grass, however, the other Pampas Grass I ordered is coming out beautifully this Spring. It may be more hardy than the Pinks.
      Thanks,
