Design Ideas: Use this hardy grass where it's too cold for true Pampas Grass. It is a stunning addition to the garden, either planted as a specimen or in a group for the larger garden. Plant in well-draining soil, as excessive moisture or fertility will will stunt growth or cause the canes to fall over. Consider as a background specimen in a cutting garden; the handsome plumes are striking in floral displays, either fresh or dried.

Provide lean, loose soil with excellent drainage. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates mild drought. Hard prune old foliage to 6 inches above the ground in early spring before new foliage emerges.
