Pink Pampas Grass

Description:

Cortaderia selloana. Pink Pampas Grass gets even taller than its white sibling, but it is a tad more tender. At 4m (12') tall, with huge feathery flower clusters, this plant makes a statement in any garden space. The flamboyant panicles are very slightly tinged pink, and they make superb cut flowers, both fresh and dried. This massive perennial takes three years to reach full maturity, so make it part of a long term garden plan. Cortaderia is naturally heat tolerant, and its sharp leaves make it deer resistant.

Use 50 seeds per two foot diameter planting to create the dense clump look. Simply press the seeds lightly into moist soil indoors or direct sown. The seeds need light to germinate, so avoid covering them. The leaves of this fast-growing grass have sharp edges. Pink Pampas Grass is hardy to Zone 8, but can be overwintered in cooler zones by mulching over the roots in winter.
