Dwarf Pampas Grass makes a bold statement with massive ivory plumes that tower over handsome, arching foliage. Flowers emerge in late-summer and last for months. The silky plumes are excellent for cutting or drying. Despite their size, plants tolerate wind and move gracefully in a breeze. A tough, fast-growing and drought-tolerant specimen. (Cortaderia selloana ‘Pumila’)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
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.
