This is the very tall variety, (15 feet here) hardy through zone 5 and higher. Don't expect this to behave and be small. You can also count on it eating up some space. The best place for it is somewhere where you can mow around it. Makes a great screen year-round. We leave ours standing over the winter for contrast against the pines.
I have a lot of this. I can ship it through June.
If you have other decorative grasses to trade I'd be interested.

Hi Synda!
Great! Would you prefer two starts then? One for you, and one for your Mom?

This grass gets 15 ft tall here in clay soil, so plant it where it won't shade other stuff out. I like it on the North, or West side of other plantings if it goes into a border. It helps provide protection if you leave it stand over the winter.

I should have this in the mail on Monday. Let me know if you want 2 starts.

(Love the artwork!)

Best regards, chelle

chelle,
Are you still offering the pampas grass? I would love to have some. I don't have any other grasses to trade, so I would have to pay postage if that is ok with you. Let me know.
Thanks,
Staci

Hello Staci.
Yes, I have tons of the pampas grass, and I think it would be possible to ship it just about anytime because it's really resilient. I've already pulled a clump and forgotten to replant it for a week or two and it did just fine.
Just click on my picture, (avatar) in this post and cmail me your shipping info and I'll send some to you. I'll be mailing plants this Monday if you can get it to me by this evening yours will make that post.
Have a great day!

Hi Chelle,

If you are planning to continue trading your pampas grass you might be interested in some of the "volunteers" that come up for me in the spring.

Caryopteris
Russian Sage
Monarda
Ajuga
and whatever else will come back after the scorching summer that we had with very little rain.

Let me know.

Certainly Teri. I have plenty of the very tall pampas to share and possibly others as well. Smiling
I don't have positive ID on some of them but there's a gorgeous zebra grass and a plumed fountain grass as well. The plumed varieties are especially great this time of year - graceful and pretty, even wearing tan.

OK chelle,

I guess we will be doing some trading this spring, then. I will definitely be splitting the above mentioned along with some pulmonaria, daisy, hosta, and lots of bulbs and tubers that were stored this winter without any ID attached to them. I don't know if you have any experience with rooting rose cuttings. If so I have about 30 different hybrid tea and floribunda roses that I could cut and send.

More in spring.

That sounds good Teri.

The unknown bulbs could certainly live here. Most of our earlier plants have no ID; we just never had the need to keep track of them.

I keep trying to root rose cuttings. One of these days it'll actually work and I'll be ecstatic!

These grasses are beginning to grow now, so I should dig, pack and ship them before they get too tall. Anyone who still wants one, please send me a C-mail soonest and we'll go from there. Smiling

I'd like some Pampas Grass if you have more. Just want you to know that I bought "rooter pots" to try to be more successful rooting roses. (Haven't had any luck so far with other methods).

I'm waiting until after I get blooms so that I can use that cane.

I haven't had any luck rooting semi-hardwoods either...no matter what I do. I think in my case it's largely because I get too busy and they don't get the attention they need. I hope those rooting containers work well for you. Please LMK how it goes.....I need any and all of the help that I can get! Rolling on the floor laughing

I sent you a C-mail regarding the pampas grass. Smiling
