This smaller, more sedate pampus requires space for its expansive arching foliage. It is worth growing for the huge plumes of white feathered flower spikes that will provide interest well into the winter months. Ideal for planting in mixed borders to provide late seasonal interest with its impressive architectural plumage lasting well into the winter months.

Cultivation tips: Pampus grass might be a bit cliched 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 well drained soil - including chalky or sandy soils. It will need plenty of sunlight to flower well, but beware, winter cutting back of spent flower stems and foliage is tough work so wear gloves.
