Short Description: Purple Pampas Grass Seeds. Purple Pamapas grass lends a royal bend to your landscape. The deep hues and slight shades of its coloration can add accents and highlights to any landscape feature. Planted in conjunction with other vibrantly colored plantings will balance out most landscapes.
Details: Pampas grass is a large perennial grass native to Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Its common name is in obvious reference to the Argentine grasslands (the pampas) where it grows.It grows in large clumps eight to ten or more, feet high, bearing in late summer silvery-white, purple, reddish, bluish, or pinkish silken plumes which rise to a height of 6 to 10 feet, with proper care and fertilization, Dwarf Pampas grass can grow to 10 feet. The plume-like inflorescence differs between male and female plants. Female plants produce plumes that are broad and full due to silky hairs covering the tiny flowers. Male plumes appear narrow and thin because of the absence of hair on the flowers. Pampas grass can be a very attractive and functional plant when used correctly in the landscape. It can be used as a specimen plant in isolated locations on large lawns. Because it grows very rapidly, Pampas grass is an excellent addition to any landscaping project. The plant will look great the first year, and in another 1 to 2 years it will become established enough for division, allowing it to be divided and used elsewhere in your landscape..
