This outstanding and very hard to locate English selection of the South American pampas grass is the finest variegated form that we have encountered... unfortunately, also the most tender. The narrow foliage on this 48" tall clumper is banded with white edges, while the base of the leaves sports a brilliant dark purple... a cool contrast. In late summer, the clumps are topped with the typical pampas plumes. Our plant has survived 0 degrees F with only minor damage.
