Dwarf Pampas Grass - Jet Streams
The Dwarf Pampas Grass Jet Streams, Cortaderia selloana pumila 'Jet Streams', is a compact ornamental grass that is a great choice for smaller gardens. This dwarf pampas displays beautiful, 6 foot, ivory plumes in the fall. These plumes towers over a compact clumping grass.
It is best to leave 'Jet Streams' stand over the winter before cutting it back hard in mid-spring. ‘Jet Stream’ pampas is a very good grower and more cold hardy than the species.
Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with all-purpose fertilizer. The newly planted 'Jet Streams' requires more frequent watering than established landscape plantings, so provide moderately fertile soil with good drainage.
Useful as a specimen along walls and in corners, it can thrive in hot, full sun exposures.
The showy, silvery-cream plumes feel silky to the touch and are perfect for use in dried arrangements. ‘Jet Stream’ is low maintenance and a very impressive perennial in the landscape, even in winter!
