Ivory Feathers® Dwarf Pampas Grass
Cortaderia selloana 'Pumila'
|Description||A beautiful landscape specimen prized for its handsome fall flowers. The long stalks of dramatic, creamy white plumes are held above the dense clump of green foliage. This perennial grass is wind and drought tolerant, and provides a showy windbreak or screen. The smaller dwarf form is well-suited to smaller gardens and landscapes.|
|Watering||Once established water during dry spells.|
|Mature Size||Foliage reaches 3 to 5 ft. tall, 4 to 6 ft. wide; plumes 8 to 10 ft. tall.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Privacy Screen, Windbreak|
|Design Ideas||Although native to the southern regions of South America, this beautiful, Dwarf Pampas Grass blends into a desert or Mediterranean landscape well. The ivory colored plumes reach well above the foliage and offer an architectural look around patios and ponds. Well suited as a visual barrier or hedge in the far reaches of the garden. Plant with other bold forms like Agave and Yucca or keep it the standout plant amongst evergreen shrubs and perennials.|
|Companion Plants||Ninebark (Physocarpus); Spruce (Picea); Yucca (Yucca); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Rosemary (Rosmarinus)|
|Care||Easily adapts to most soil types, provided they are well-drained. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Control weeds until the plants have filled in. Apply fertilizer in winter. Hard prune old foliage to the ground in late winter, before new growth emerges.|
|Lore||Although it is not considered sterile, Ivory Feathers® is noted as producing little to no viable seed.|
