Pampas grass maintenance

The more sun this garden plant gets, the more abundantly it will grow and bloom. In winter, protect it against the cold with straw or pine branches. As your pampas grow bigger, stronger and more mature, less protection will be needed. That is unless there is severe frost as this plant is quite susceptible to it. To protect pampas against the cold tie its leaves together for the winter season. Try to avoid too much moisture in the soil of the pot, as this type of grass does not like having its roots too damp.
