grass

Here’s a plant I haven’t posted about all year! It’s out Zebra Pampas Grass! We have four large bunches of it in the back yard. It’s one of the very first plants we bought when we moved in so these plants are going on 8 years of age. We bought three and moved them several years ago, and split one of them at that time so there are four now. Two of them are so huge they should probably be split again. They are definitely an anchor in the back yard to our beds and garden paths. And you know it’s fall when they start to sprout plums on top! They also start to stretch out and take up more space. We don’t bother cutting them back until the beginning of spring. It’s always nice to see them turn wheat colored by the time Thanksgiving arrives.
