Famous for its unmistakable feathery white or pink plumes, pampas grass (Cortaderia selloana) adds beautiful texture to outdoor spaces.
Pampas grass is a large ornamental grass, growing up to 10 feet high and wide. Planted in the spring, these large grasses are very fast growers and can quickly become invasive.
Full sun is ideal for this grass, though it can grow in partial sun as well. Pampas grass is drought tolerant, for new plants, water them deeply right after planting, then water every few weeks. They require no watering once established.
It's a natural habitat for native wildlife, such as birds, skunks foxes and more!

, A plant that is simply beautiful
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has devised a system to provide gardeners with a basic guide to plant hardiness – how much winter cold a plant can withstand. The Hardiness Zone Map system divides the United States and Canada into numbered zones based on lowest average winter temperature. Even within a zone, different micro-climates exist, such as large urban areas which may be warmer or land situated at different elevations.
How Hardy Are These Plants?: Zones
|ZONE||AVERAGE COLDEST TEMPS|
|1||below -50 °F|
|2||-50 °F to -40 °F|
|3||-40 °F to -30 °F|
|4||-30 °F to -20 °F|
|5||-20 °F to -10 °F|
|6||-10 °F to 0 °F|
|7||0 °F to 10 °F|
|8||10 °F to 20 °F|
|9||20 °F to 30 °F|
|10||30 °F to 40 °F|
|11||above 40 °F|
