Grass, Pink Pampas
Description: This ornamental grass blooms in late summer, just when the garden needs a little new color. Outstanding for fresh arrangements, the blooms are also wonderful if left to mature on the plant, becoming a rich golden-tan with the advent of cool weather. They are also a mainstay of dried arrangements, offering superb vertical accent for any setting from a tall urn in the hallway to a wall display. This magnificent plant thrives in full sun and hot climates. From seed it will take 2 or 3 years to bloom, but your patience is richly repaid by long-lived garden performance!
