You can enjoy fresh green foliage topped by long, thick dusty-pink plumes when you grow Pampas Grass seeds. These elegant ornamental grasses have "feather duster" plumes from late summer and throughout the fall! The plumes are often cut and dried for indoor use, or they can be left on the plant for wonderful winter interest. Ornamental Pampas Grass is not only attractive, but it also is very functional. It can be a stunning specimen plant in large landscapes, or it can be used to create screens or borders. These large ornamental grasses do need lots of room.

The Pampas Grass is a low-maintenance plant. There is no need to spray for insects or any other bothersome garden pest. It will grow in most soils and responds favorably to frequent fertilization. To obtain good growth and plume production, pampas grass should be fertilized with a complete fertilizer (6-6-6, 8-8-8 or 10-10-10) at a rate of two pounds per 100 square feet four times each year. Ornamental grass care also includes cutting out the brown, dead foliage in the late winter. Or, if significant frost damage occurs, the entire plant can be cut back to 2 feet from the ground. The grass blades are sharp, so care must be taken when pruning.

The seeds can be started indoors. Place the seeds on top of the soil and gently press the seeds in. Keep the seeds lightly moist until germination occurs. The ornamental grass plants will need to be re-potted into larger pots as they grow. Some gardeners start the Pampas Grass seeds directly outside in the spring after danger of frost has passed. Keep the ornamental grass seeds moist, and throughout the first growing season, water the grass with regularity. In subsequent years, Pampas grass will be drought tolerant. Typically, plumes will not form until the plant is 2 - 3 years old.
