Free Oranametal Grass - Maybe

Posted by drahme NV (My Page) on

Well, I started doing some trimming earlier in the month and transplanted about six plugs started from the established grasses:

These grasses I still haven't exactly identified, other than they were from a Walmart sale some years ago where I got three for ten dollars. They are not exactly a Pampas grass (or maybe they are), but they do do well.

At any rate, I only can only use one of them and if some of the the other starts survive, you are welcome to them.

They are drought tolerant and Northern Nevada tolerant.

Hello dRahme,

I'd love to have some if I was in your part of the state. I love ornamental grasses and have a dwarf pampas grass, Pumila, that I am very fond of. Hopefully you got some takers from up north.

Thank You!. That's exactly what I have - never have been able to put a name to it. I did a search on that and came up with: Cortaderia selloana Pumila Dwarf Pampas Grass.

Mystery solved.

Thanks again, Dan.
