Collection: Pampas

Pampas is a perennial, tussock-like grass.  There are two species present in Northland (Cortaderia jubata and Cortaderia selloana).  Both have coarse abrasive leaves that are bluish green above and dark-green below, with a conspicuous midrib.  It grows 2-3m high and has flowering stems, which can be up to 5m high, have distinctive, erect, fluffy white or pinky-purple flower heads.  Pampas may be confused with the three native toe toe species which have more creamy-yellow flower heads.  The pampas species also have dead leaf bases which spiral, resembling wood shavings.
