Dwarf Pampas Grass | Cortaderia selloana Pumila

This Dwarf Pampas Grass is an easy-to-grow ornamental grass that produces amazing showy flowers in late summer throughout fall. This Dwarf Pampas Grass matures at 5 to 6 feet tall with a spread of 3 to 4 feet wide, making it an excellent choice plant for small gardens. The long stalks of the beautiful white plumes rise another 2 feet above the foliage of the Cortaderia selloana Pumila

Water the Dwarf Pampas Grass regularly the first year to establish a deep root system. Cut back in late winter to early spring to about 8 inches above the ground. Divide plants every 3 to 5 years in spring to keep them looking their best. Use general purpose fertilize in spring.

Pair your Dwarf Pampas Grass with Yucca plant varieties for an attractive desert or Mediterranean landscape. Wind and drought tolerant. 

Planting and care for Pampas Grasses is available from the University of Georgia Extension. 

Note: Cotaderia selloana is invasive in warmer climates. Remove seed heads before they dry and shatter dispersing seeds.
