Design Ideas Use this hardy grass where it's too cold for true Pampas Grass. It is a stunning addition to the garden, either planted as a specimen or in a group for the larger garden. Plant in well-draining soil, as excessive moisture or fertility will will stunt growth or cause the canes to fall over. Consider as a background specimen in a cutting garden; the handsome plumes are striking in floral displays, either fresh or dried.

Companion Plants Barberry (Berberis); Tickseed (Coreopsis); Aster (Aster); Coneflower (Echinacea); Elderberry (Sambucus)
CARE
Care Provide lean, loose soil with excellent drainage. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Hard prune old foliage to 6 inches above the ground in early spring before new foliage emerges.
