Pampas Grass

Post by tdunn » Wed Mar 28, 2012 6:49 am

I've just started some Pampas Grass from a Ferry-Morse seed packet. The packet claims that it's a perennial and I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's a reliable perennial in south central Pennsylvania-zone 6.

Thanks

It depends upon the variety of pampas grass you planted whether it would be hardy in your area. The most cold hardy variety of pampas grass that I know of is Cortaderia selloana 'Pumila'. This is marginally hardy in Zone 6. Check the packet and see if it lists the species but I rather doubt it will be hardy in your area of PA.

Thanks Lori for responding to both of my inquiries. I'll contact Ferry-Morse as the packet doesn't indicate what variety the seeds are and continue to test my patience with the Stephanotis.
