Cortaderia selloana

Common Name: White Pampas Grass
Plant Family: Poaceae
Plant Type: Hardy Grass

A tough evergreen grass noted for its large feathery plumes, currently much in vogue as a cut flower. Needs space and sun. Use gloves when harvesting flowers (if you touch the leaves you'll find they have sharp edges) and when tidying this up in the spring - rake away old leaves and cut off any remaining flower stalks.
