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
72-84" tall x 48-72" wide. ‘White Feather’ Pampas grass is world famous for its massive size and theatrical floral display. Plumes emerge mid-summer and shine silky white above narrow blades of vibrant green. The huge plumes are spectacular reflecting the setting sun in golden hues or dancing on the wind. Plumes last through the winter, adding texture during the dormant season. They are prized for their versatility in flower arrangements and dried indoor decorations. Plant ‘White Feather’ in large masses for a showy windbreak or as an accent in the mixed perennial border. Pampas grass is tolerant of wind and drought. Allow foliage to stand through winter as it protects the crowns from cold damage. Wear protective clothing when cutting back in early spring as foliage can be sharp. Attracts birds to the garden..

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.
