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. 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 and attracts birds to the garden. Wear protective clothing when cutting back in early spring as foliage can be sharp. Pampas Grass is extremely easy to grow and can reach heights of eight feet or taller, making it a great option for a living fence or privacy wall. 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.
