36-72" tall x 36-48' wide. Dwarf Pampas Grass is one of the showiest ornamental grasses providing lush texture and contrast. Long, flowing stems provide strong architecture to the garden and pair well with other bold plant forms. The gorgeous plumes are sterile, meaning flowers do not produce viable seed so plants will not become weedy like other pampas grasses. Plants are adaptable and versatile. Use as a specimen or plant in masses for windbreaks, backdrops, or as a privacy screen. Grows in any average to dry soil with good drainage and tolerates challenging conditions such as air pollution, dry winds, and salty mist. Cut back dead foliage in spring, wearing gloves to protect hands form the sharp blades. A pet-friendly plant that is deer and rabbit resistant.
