Cortaderia selloana Pumila Hybrids, commonly known as Dwarf Pampas Grass, is a magnificent ornamental planting. It produces stately stalks, averaging 5' feet tall, topped with swoon worthy, fluffy silver-white plumes blooming in fall each year. Plants grow in clumps with blade-type leaves that grow 30" to 36" inches tall when fully mature. This variety is ideal for small garden spaces and containers with well drained growing medium. This easy to grow, low maintenance variety is hardier than any other pampas grass; thus it can be grown much farther north than others. We recommend treating this variety as a tender perennial in zones 5-6, and as a hardy perennial in zones 7-10. Pampas plants make an excellent, architecturally interesting garden screen and the leaves remain evergreen in warmer zones. Instead of cutting back the foliage each fall, wait until the following spring to prune back, this will spur on healthy new growth. Plumes will dry down as a very light amber color. Plants can resist momentary dryness, with the wind and cold (up to -4°F), but the cold mixed with moisture can be fatal for this plant. Make sure to wear gloves and long sleeves when pruning and harvesting the plumes as the leaf blades can be quite sharp! UltraClean seed. Packet: 50 seeds.
