Pampas Grass (Cortaderia selloana) - You can enjoy fresh green foliage topped by long, thick dusty-purple 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!

Cortaderia selloana 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.

How To Grow Purple Pampas Grass From Ornamental Grass Seeds: Cortaderia selloana seeds can be started indoors. Using a seed starting tray filled with a pre-moistened seed starting medium that drains well, place the ornamental grass seeds on top of the soil and gently press the seeds in. Keep the purple Pampas Grass seeds 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. Prepare a seedbed, and press the seeds into the soil that has been worked into a fine tilth. 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 of age.

Germination time: 5-7 days For germination temperature: 15-20 Celsius. Package: 1 PP Simple Packaging Applications: Farm, balcony, roof, garden, patio, garden, potted

Germination Instructions:

  1. Pour an even mixture of peat moss and light sand into a 4-inch diameter planting container. Pampas grass seeds require loose, well-drained, moist soil for germination. Plant the seeds indoors four to six weeks before the last killing frost in spring. Keep the plants indoors during the first winter to protect young plants from frost if seeds are planted later than spring.
  2. Place five evenly spaced pampas grass seeds on the soil surface in the planter. Lightly press the seeds into the soil; do not cover them with potting mix.
  3. Water the soil until moist to the touch, but not soaking wet. Water with a slow drip so the seeds don't wash away.
  4. Cover the planters with a clear, plastic food storage bag. Place the open end of the bag over the planter to allow air circulation and control soil temperature and moisture. Alternatively, you can push straws into the soil around the perimeter of the planter and use them to support clear plastic wrap.
  5. Place the planter in sunny window that receives six to eight hours of direct or filtered sunlight daily. The room temperature should be between 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit for best germination success. You can place the planters on a seed germination mat, on top of a radiator or near a vent to provide additional heat in cooler rooms. Water the seeds daily to maintain an even level of moisture in the soil required for seed germination.
  6. Water the seeds as needed to keep it moist to the touch, but not wet. While consistent moisture aids germination, excessive moisture can cause seeds and seedlings to rot before they get well established.
  7. Allow a few weeks for the pampas seeds to germinate and reveal seedlings. If each of the five seeds germinate, leave all the plants in place to grow as a single bunch.
  8. Transplant the pampas grass outdoors when plants reach a height of 3 to 4 inches. Plant the grass in holes twice the diameter of the original container, or 8 inches in diameter, and the same height as the pots. Space each plant 8 feet apart to allow the pampas to reach maturity. Select a site with full to partial sunlight.
  9. Spread a 2- to 3-inch layer of shredded bark mulch around the pampas grass clumps to aid in moisture retention and help prevent weeds. Do not push the mulch directly against the stems.
  10. Water the plants regularly to keep the soil moist for the first growing season. As plants mature, they should only require irrigation once weekly or more often during hot, dry months.
