Genus Description Cortaderia is a genus of about 23 species of evergreen or semi-evergreen, perennial grasses from grassland, often near water, in New Zealand, New Guinea, and South America. They form dense tussocks of stiff, flat, narrowly linear, often glaucous leaves with rough or sharp margins, and bear thick-stemmed, plume-like, silver, gold, or pale rose-pink flower panicles (usually with male and female spikelets on separate plants, but occasionally hermaphroditic). Female spikelets have long, silky hairs at the bases. The plumes may be used in fresh or dried flower arrangements. Cortaderia selloana (pampas grass) is a densely tufted, clump-forming, evergreen, perennial grass with arching, glaucous, mid-green leaves, to 8ft or longer. In late summer, silky, silver, often pink or purple flushed spikelets are borne in pyramidal to oblong panicles, 18-36in long, on erect stems.
Care Tips
Cultivation Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun, with ample space to develop. Protect crowns of young plants during winter. Cut and comb out the previous year’s stems and dead foliage annually, in late winter or early spring, taking care to avoid the sharp leaf margins, which can inflict severe cuts.
Pests and Diseases Helminthosporium leaf spots are common.
