Q:When is the best time to plant these in WI?
by|May 24, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  The best time to plant Pampas grass in Wisconsin is in the spring, after the last frost, to give it the entire growing season to establish its roots. However, Pampas grass is not ideally suited for Wisconsin's climate, as it thrives in USDA Hardiness Zones 7-11 and Wisconsin falls into Zones 3-5. The cold winters in Wisconsin can damage or kill Pampas grass, making it a challenging plant to grow successfully in that region. Consider planting more cold-hardy ornamental grasses that can better withstand Wisconsin's harsh winters.

    Q:What zone are Chillicothe
    by|Apr 18, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Chillicothe, Ohio, is located in USDA Hardiness Zone 6a. While Pampas Grass (Cortaderia selloana) is generally hardy in Zones 7-11, it can tolerate Zone 6 with some winter protection. In colder climates like Zone 6, Pampas Grass may experience dieback of foliage during winter months, but it typically regrows in spring or could perish altogether. To improve its chances of survival in Zone 6, consider planting Pampas Grass in a sheltered location, providing a thick layer of mulch around the base for insulation, and wrapping the foliage with burlap or other protective covering during extreme cold snaps. With proper care and winter protection, Pampas Grass can still thrive and add ornamental value to gardens in Chillicothe, Ohio, but you might consider finding a ornamental grass that is better suited for your environment.

      Q:Can I prune these? Are they dead?
      by|Mar 16, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes, you can prune Pampas Grass in early spring before new growth emerges. Use sharp pruning shears to remove dead or damaged foliage, cutting back to about 6-12 inches above the ground. When determining if parts of the Pampas Grass are dead, examine the foliage closely. Dead leaves will be dry, brittle, and easily detached from the plant. Live foliage will be firm, pliable, and show signs of greenness or vitality. Additionally, if the center of the plant appears brown and mushy, it may indicate rot and require further investigation. Overall, pruning and removing dead or damaged growth in early spring help promote healthy regrowth and maintain the aesthetic appeal of Pampas Grass.

        5 days after delivery dying?
        Not sure they are supposed to look like this, are they dying? I let them sit for a couple days, watered them and now turning brown. Should i be asking for a refund?

          Not sure if these are salvageable
          Bought a year ago and I’m not sure if I can remove the dried leaves?

            Not white as promised
            I was very excited when I found this plant in early spring as I have been wanting the white pampas grass bloom look in my garden. I purchased 6 plants and care for them all summer, waiting for once again, white flowers. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED at the moment, only one plant produced flowers (3 to be exact) and they are PINK! This is a scam! Why is HomeDepot falsely advertising??? 3 other plants are not doing so well, hopefully they will survive the winter.

              Not really. The first plant I bought died so I bought a second. It’s not growing much either. The lemongrass that I bought grew like crazy. Not sure what to expect.

              Very pretty
              These came in great shape and well packaged. I hope I can get them planted before March 2021 ends. Looking forward to the giant plumes.

                Invasive
                Pampas grass is invasive and illegal to plant in certain states and countries. It’s beautiful but unfortunately not an eco-friendly choice.
