It wasn't easy to get to the Pampas Grass plumes. The blades of the grass have sharp edges, so you had to wear gloves. But once you got hold of a thick plume stalk and cut it, you had the handsomest-tailed stick horse to ride in the whole neighborhood! All of the kids would be galloping around with the fluffy-plumed stalk between their legs yelling "Yee-haw!" and "Giddy-up!" at the top of their lungs.
Of course, this was before video games and cell phones, but we bet that kids would still ride a pretend pony when it's as gorgeous as this.
Pink Pampas Grass (Cortaderia selloana 'Rosea') is as eye-catching as a stallion. It forms huge clumps of thick, flowing leaves that are beautiful and architectural on their own, but the real beauty is the foot-long sand-pink feathery plumes.
If you want a quick, living hedge to cover a fence or block a view, you will love Pink Pampas Grass. It grows like there is no tomorrow. (So well, in fact, that some states have put it on the invasive species list, including Texas, California and Hawaii.) Make sure you plant it where you want it because it can be challenging to get rid of once it's established.
If you need an elegant statement plant that you can see across the garden, then you will love Pink Pampas Grass, too. They are stunning on a hill, reflected in a pond or marking the end of a path.
Pink Pampas Grass is simple to grow in just about any soil and brings easy elegance to your yard. Order yours today!
