Form Spikey

This larger growing pampus requires plenty of space for its expansive arching foliage which can look somewhat scruffy. It is worth it for the huge plumes of white feathered flower spikes that will provide interest well into the winter months.

Cultivation tips: Pampus grass might have been over planted but then that's because its tough and it puts on a good show. Cortaderia will tolerate dry soils but does best in any half decent fertile yet well drained soil. It will need plenty of sunlight to flower but beware, winter cutting back of spent flower stems and sharp foliage is tough work so wear gloves.
