The shortest pampas grass we sell, but still impressive when its sunshine-yellow flowers reach 150cm.
The bright lemony flowers of Splendid Star Pampas Grass contrast beautifully against its bluey-green leaves. The leaves themselves are also streaked with yellow, giving the whole plant a warming glow at any time of the year. Very beautiful and an immediate talking point for visitors and guests, but watch out for the sharp edges on those leaves.
Ornamental Grasses are chosen for their decorative qualities and whether used indoors or outdoors, they can bring a striking diversity to your garden. From round shrubs to tall walls of quivering spikes, ornamental grasses bring new shapes and textures that will contrast against the twisted roots of trees and the blooms of traditional plants and flowers. They are also becoming increasingly popular due to their hardiness against the British weather and their ability to hold their colour through autumn and winter.
