Hardy Pampas Grass
|Description||One of the loveliest ornamental grasses, superb as an architectural specimen or large accent. Foliage has a clumping habit; plant in groups to create a screen or windbreak. Long, showy, silvery white, silky plumes have gorgeous autumn coloring, persist into winter, and are superb in fresh or dried floral arrangements.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Early fall; flowers persist through winter.|
|Mature Size||Foliage reaches 8 to 10 ft. tall, 4 to 6 ft. wide; blooms rise taller.|
|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||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.|
