Cortaderia ‘Blue Bayou’

This amazing selection of pampas grass is looking particularly stunning at JLBG this summer. This plant has had quite a few false starts in commerce, but hopefully it’s getting a bit closer to being commercially available. We love its compact nature, although it does reach 7′ in height and 10′ wide.

    What a beautiful grass. I grew “Sunningdale Silver” here on Cape Cod. I was pushing its limits – it made it through four or five years before it died. I would love to grow “Blue Bayou” but it would really be a risk. For those in the right zone, it is so worth growing for its beauty.
