I started some from seed and have a fairly big patch which has so far ignored any frosts, the catalogues say good to zone 7, am I crazy to expect it to survive the winter?M

Mora .. I grew it a few years ago and planted them close to the foundation of my home. Some of it did come back up but I mulched it heavely .. this year nothing .. then again I even lost my hardy ornamental grasses. Im not sure if growing it in large bell pots and then over wintering in a garage might work .. but grasses dont normally like to be disturbed in the fall. But it might be worth a try .. even if you take a few plugs from your existing plant they might continue on indoors.

Mora,
I'm trying the white pampass grass - apparently it's hardier.

Let's see how we do and compare notes in the spring.

RE: Pink Pampas Grass

Most perennial grasses would reseed so you probably do have babies all over the place.
