Pampas Grass or Tussock Grass POACEAE.
A large grass with pink tinted flowers in tall plums. Plants flower from 4 to 9 feet tall and can spread out about the same in width. Clump forming with evergreen leaves that arch out over the ground. Blooms in late summer. Sometimes grown in the north as an annual and dug in the fall and brought inside and stored cool and dry until next spring. Grown from seed, plants need two years of growth before they are large enough to flower, but well worth the wait.
Native to South America.
Surface sow seeds and use 70-80F, germination in 7-21 days. Water from below, seeds are small and so are the seedlings at first. Use clean seed medium and pots- susceptible to damping off if to wet.
