The earlier you learn how to maintain pampas grass the better you get at managing this invasive ornamental grass.
It is very easy to grow this grass because it grows like a weed in California and Texas. But in Hawaii and New Zealand, it is banned by the government.
Pampas grass comes in both male and female varieties. You can tell the difference by looking at the plumes. The females have fuller, silkier, more attractive plumes. Female pampas grass is much nicer looking and gives pleasing results.
If you are planting pampas grass with another type, you must provide at least 6 feet of space between plants. Plant this grass away from structures because it is highly flammable and can present a fire hazard.
