Description

72-84" (6-7ft) tall x 48-72" (4-6ft) wide. 'Pink Feather' Pampas Grass creates a monumental and theatrical display wherever it grows. The huge plumes are often dried and used in large vases for interior decorating. Plant 'Pink 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 and attracts birds to the garden. Wear protective clothing when cutting back in early spring as foliage can be sharp. The name Pampas comes from an area of rangeland in Argentina, South America, called The Pampas, known for 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 C. jubata, but still  considered a risk for those areas.
