Cortaderia selloana 'Silver Comet'

Regular price $12.00 Sale

Silver Comet Pampas Grass. This is by far the most outstanding variegated pampas grass anywhere. White stripes border the outside of all leaves ending in a purple sheath at the base. It gives the appearance of an evergreen Miscanthus. This is also the most dwarf of all pampas grasses. The foliage reaches only 3 to 4 ft. and the plumes are only to 5 ft. The Pampas Grasses are all native to Argentina. As amazing as it may seem, I have never seen this species self sow in the wild. For most attractive growth, one should cut the old winter-burnt foliage and seed stalks back in February, so that when the new growth emerges in the spring, it won't be mixed with last years aging leaves and bloom stalks.
