So what is pampas grass exactly?
Pampas grass is formally known as Cortaderia selloana and it is a flowering plant native to Southern South America. Pampas grass was then planted all over Europe and North America. While it serves as a beautiful and decorative piece for your home, pampas grass is considered an invasive weed in some parts of the world!
Pampas grass can grow up to 3 meters high and from seed to maturity it can take 2-4 years. It is usually harvested from August to February, but they are generally available all year round. The feathery tufts are called plumes and the stems are called reeds. When dried, pampas grass is a beautiful and versatile ornamental grass for your home that is everlasting and requires very little maintenance!
