Plant Information

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.

        Comments about American Meadows Pampas Grass Pink Feather:

        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.

        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,

          Q & A

          Plant With These:

          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).
