Do you love the drama of pampas grass but fear its immense size? Perhaps you'd like to try 'Pumila', a dwarf version though I use the word “dwarf” in relative terms. The narrow blue-green foliage reaches about 3-5 feet in height and is topped with dramatic, 5-6 foot tall, white, feathery plumes. Moist to dry well-drained soil in sun or part shade. From Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
