ALL ABOUT PAMPAS GRASS!

Fellow boho lovers, pour yourself a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or a cup of lovely tearebellion tea and settle in for a relaxing read as we cover all things pampas — my favourite ornamental grass!

If you love these fluffy wonderful boho decor flowers as much as I do, we have a treasure trove of information about them for you, including History, How to Care for them, and how long Pampas Grass lasts and much more.

History

Pampas Grass is native to southern South America, hailing from the Pampas region (hence its name). It was planted in Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand in the 70’s primarily as an ornamental grass to be harvest and used for decorative purposes once dried — and we seen a huge resurgence in its popularity over the past couple of years.

Vase Life

Pampas grass lasts up to 3 years! So it's so much better for the environment than fresh flowers, plus they don't need any water or maintenance.

Did You Know?

Pampas Grass is actually considered an imposing grass (even an invasive weed in some areas!) and typically grow 5 – 10′ tall. It’s highly adaptable and can grow in a wide range of environments and climates.

PAMPAS GRASS CARE AND CONDITIONING TIPS

  1. Before bringing Pampas Grass into your home, give each reed a good shake outside— allowing excess plume shedding to occur.
  2. If needed, use a hairdyer to gently help the pampas grass fluff out.
  3. Use a pair of garden shears to trim the stems to the desired height for your vase or arrangement.
  4. Arrange Pampas Grass reeds in your vase, delicately styling the plume until you’ve achieved the desired effect. 
  5. Since Pampas Grass reeds are dried, they do not require any water. Low maintenance perfection!

Tip
You can also remove strands in sections from the bottom of each plume to use in smaller vases or arrangements. Just make sure to remove strands evenly from all sides to maintain the integrity of your pampas.
