Dwarf Pampas Grass
James from NC wrote (March 19, 2012):
This is indeed a smaller selection of Cortaderia, but it still has the bad habits of its larger relatives. It dies out in the middle in short time. Its leaves are razor sharp. Like most grasses, 'Pumila' is a very hardy plant. It's tolerance of adverse conditions rivals many other plants at the home gardeners disposal. With that being said, the home gardener should consider other grasses in place of 'Pumila.' Still, 'Pumila' is the best choice if a Pampas Grass is high on an individual's want list.
