Dried Plants:

Have you started noticing the new dried plant trend going on?!  

It seems everywhere I look on Instagram someone is making a stunning dried flower arrangement that has me in all kinds of plant envy.  I even started pinning Dried Flower Arrangements on Pinterest because honestly, some of them are just so gorgeous!

The other similar trend I have been seeing, is using dried ornamental grasses and even dried out palm fronds.  It seems like many of the ornamental grasses with big flower heads are the most popular; miscanthus grasses, dried wheat and golden grasses are favorites.  

However, far and away, I think the use of Pampas grass is picking up the most traction and I have to say – I just love it.  

What is Pampas Grass?

Cortaderia selloana, commonly known as pampas grass, is a flowering plant native to southern South America, including the Pampas region after which it is named.

It is one of the loveliest ornamental grasses that is often used as a large accent plant.  The tall, showy plumes have gorgeous autumn coloring that continue into winter, and are great in fresh or dried floral arrangements.

Can I grow Pampas Grass at my house?

Pampas grass likes full sun for at least six hours a day and it grows best in well-drained soil.  It is fairly drought tolerant, so water the plant light to moderate amounts and otherwise the does not need much care.

However, please note : Pampas grass spreads VERY easily.  Their gorgeous seed heads can bear up to a million seeds over its lifetime. The self-sowing seeds can sprout in almost any kind of soil, too.   And pampas grass will come back year after year.

Because it is such a hardy plant and is quite difficult to get rid of, pampas grass is on the list of invasive weeds in California and Texas. It has also been banned in Hawaii and New Zealand.

I am have been looking into a Dwarf pampas grass variety, which only grow to about 5 feet tall. And look for a sterile variety, which means that they don’t produce seeds and cannot self-sow.

Where are the best places to buy Dried Pampas Grass Online?

I’m so glad you asked where to get dried pampas grass – ha!  I have been searching all my local plant nurseries for a Pampas Grass plant and it seems like no one has them.  While driving around town, I see the plant everywhere.  However, I feel very uncomfortable pulling up to a store front, a neighborhood entrance or in the parking lot of an apartment complex and just snipping away.

So, I started doing some online digging and guess what!  You can get Pampas Grass (along with tons of other dried flowers and grasses) online.
