What is the pink pampas grass useful for?
The Cortaderia Selloana Rosea is a decorative hardy garden plant. The grass grows loosely upright up to 200cm high. In our regions the plants are frost and wind resistant (even to sea winds) and can grow in almost any type of soil in full sun, with a preference for soils that are moist but well-drained in summer.
Cortaderia Selloana Rosea in your garden
Originally, the grass is not used to much moisture in winter. For this reason, gardeners tie the pollen together so that little precipitation can reach the heart of the plant in winter, this is done to prevent root rot. In spring, the old leaves and feathers can be cut off, down to about 15cm, to make room for new growth. With Cortaderia selloana, the female plants are mostly used because the fronds are slightly larger and fluffier than the male plants. With its stately appearance throughout much of the year, it is the perfect specimen in lawns, at the edge of a pond or in front of a dark hedge.
