Overall Description


Pampas Grass is a magnificent addition to landscapes where a natural look is desired. Also works well to fill in areas where soil is poor, or other options have failed. Grows in large mounds, or clumps......referred to as tussocks, which can reach heights of up to 8 or 9 ft when in full bloom. Grass blades are evergreen in most locations, and have a very sharp, serrated edge to them - especially when brushed in the opposite direction of growth ( from tip to base ). Bloom heads ( panicles ) are a bright white color, and very feathery & soft in both appearance, as well as touch. They are commonly dried & used in floral arrangements all over the country.
This beautiful ornamental grass is native to certain areas of South America, but is now widely seen, and used in most all parts of the world. It is very adaptable, and can withstand a wide variety of soils, and environmental situations.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend POOPeas for use with all of our evergreen species. However, either water soluble (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ), or granular fertilizers ( Holly Tone is excellent ) are also good options. Most any granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio are also acceptable. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. POOPeas may be used at anytime.
