Cortaderia selloana Pink - Pampas Grass

Cortaderia selloana Pink (Pampas Grass) seeds


A rarer version of the well-known Pampas Grass with plumes in a delightful shade of pink instead of the usual creamy-white. This is without a doubt the most majestic of all ornamental grasses with large, stately ostrich feather-like plumes rising up from a mass of tufted, narrow foliage. Easy to raise from seed, fast growing and should produce plumes in the second year.

Hardy Perennial
Flowers: Late summer
Height: 2m, Spread: 1m
Position: Sun

Packet of 50 seeds



Sowing Instructions: Sow late winter to late spring, and late summer to late autumn.  Sow onto the surface of a moist, free-draining peat based seed compost (eg. Levington). Do not cover seed and do not exclude light which is beneficial to germination. Propagate at 15 to 18C in a propagator, greenhouse or on a windowsill indoors sealed in a polythene bag. Germination should begin to take place in 14 to 21 days. As soon as some of the seedlings begin to emerge, ventilate gradually, maintain a temperature of around 15C and take care not to over-water.

Growing Instructions: Grow the seedlings on, shaded lightly from direct sunlight and when large enough to handle, pot up individually into 8 or 9cm pots. When large enough, plant out into well-drained soil in a sunny position.
