Native to South America, the Pampas Grass is considered one of the most striking ornamental grasses available, and it's easy to see why. The towering feathery plumes are instantly recognisable and were once associated with wealth and luxury in times gone by.
Suitable in any garden style, this hugely versatile grass works well as a single specimen, in groups or planting en-masse to create dramatic backdrops or natural screens. Wherever the setting, these iconic grasses never fail to add texture and movement to any space.
Despite their willowy beauty, they really are tough as nails and require very little care. They remain evergreen in warm areas and turn tan in colour in colder temperatures.
Pampas Grasses perform best in full sun or slightly shaded spots in dry to medium, well-drained soil. They can tolerate almost drought conditions and still look fabulous throughout Autumn and Winter.
What Is Supplied

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant on
Pampas Grasses work extremely well in salty winds and coastal conditions, so these are a great option for those lucky enough to live by the sea!
Grow in fertile, deep, well-drained soil in full sun if possible, and cover with a deep dry mulch to protect plants from frost in their first winter.
Choose your planting position carefully - they require plenty of space due to their size and because of the sharp leaf edges.
Cut and comb out the last year's flower stems and dead leaves in late winter or early spring; wear gloves as protection from the sharp leaf edges.
