Grass - Pumila Dwarf Pampas
18" of Silky Feathery Plumes
Pumila Dwarf Pampas Grass, Cortaderia selloana 'Pumila', is probably one of the most impressive perennials we grow!
'Pumila' is a dwarf pampas grass with huge 18 inch feathery white plumes. The showy, silvery-cream plumes feel silky to the touch and are perfect for use in dried arrangements.
Cortaderia 'Pumila' is a very good grower and much more cold hardy than the species. 'Pumila' thrives in hot, full sun exposures and is especially useful as a specimen along walls and in corners.
Plant it in moderately fertile soil with good drainage. Leave standing over the winter before cutting it back hard in early-spring.
'Pumila' is sterile and won’t re-seed itself. Protect crowns of young plants in winter. After this plant is established it can be divided in the spring.
Use this plant as a border, mass plantings, dried flowers, for edging, and as a specimen.
Beautiful and it is deer resistant!
