Cortaderia Rosea, also known as the ‘Pink Pampas Grass’, is a beautiful and striking ornamental grass that is native to South America. With its large, feathery plumes of pink flushed flowers, this grass adds a unique and elegant touch to any garden or landscape.  This unusual pampas grass looks wonderful planted by water or set in the middle of a well drained lawn.

One of the key features of the Cortaderia is its ability to grow to a substantial height, with mature plants reaching up to 3 metres tall. This makes it an ideal choice for creating a natural privacy screen or creating a focal point in a large garden.

Cortaderia rosea is also a great choice for coastal gardens, as it is salt tolerant and can withstand strong winds. Additionally, the pink pampas grass is also deer resistant, which is a huge plus for gardeners living in areas with a large deer population.

-Soil: Prefers well-drained soil. It is also salt tolerant, making it a great choice for coastal gardens.
