Pink pampas grass: First of all, many ornamental grasses are out there. Look out for the pink pampas grass, which is most attractive. It has feathery plumes and is an attractive ornamental grass that is popular in many landscapes.

These grasses are extremely easy to grow. However, it is important to know what you are getting into before
planting pampas grass around the home.

It is actually a very fast grower and can become quite large, anywhere from 5 to 10 feet high and wide. It can be invasive. Bear this in mind when looking for the right spot to plant it.

How to grow pampas grass:
Before growing pampas grass, be sure to put it somewhere in the landscape where it has plenty of room to grow, especially when planting more than one. When mass planting pampas grass, you  will have to space them
about 6 to 8 feet apart.

Pink pampas grass enjoys areas with full sun but will tolerate partial shade.
It also can grow easily in a wide range of soil types but prefers moist, well-draining soil.

This grass can tolerate drought and wind, which is another plus side to growing pampas grass.
Due to its large size, however, this grass is really practical only in large gardens.

How to care for pink pampas grass:
Pink pampas grass care is minimal, once established. It requires little maintenance other than watering in
extreme drought. It should also be pruned each year to the ground.

This is usually performed in early spring. These grasses have sharp foliage, therefore the task of pruning should
be done with great care, using gloves and a long-sleeved shirt.

These grasses can be given a balanced fertilizer following pruning to help stimulate regrowth.
This is optional, as it is not really required.

Propagating pink pampas grass:
Pruned clumps can be sliced through with a shovel and replanted elsewhere. Pink pampas grass is usually propagated through division in spring.

Pink pampas grass bears male and female plumes on separate plants, with females being the most common among varieties grown. Normally, only female plants are propagated.

They are much showier than their male counterparts with fuller plumes, that is flowers of silk-like hairs, of
which the male plants do not have.
