I am looking for a Pink Pampas Grass Plant similar to the one in the photo. I am aware of one called 'rosea' which has a Pink Flush through it but I would like one which is totally pink which might be quite rare.

Anyone any ideas




thats lovley but like you im not so sure how easy to get it is sorry .if you had the latin name maybe of that perticuler cultivar youd probably find it on google or perhaps someone on here will know which is a good chance . sorry i cant help .

never seen one that pink before only a very pale pink,did you actualy see it or was it a picture bainliam?

Good question Poppylinda - have you actually seen this plant with your own eyes in the flesh so to speak Bainliam? Or is this just a photograph or picture of one, particularly one published by a seller? This one looks like it's been retouched to give that colour, a common trick in plant catalogues and sales material.

I've seen photos of a purportedly pink Pampas Grass - called 'Cortaderia selloana 'Pink Feather'.

Look in the RHS Plantfinder or google it for stockists.

From a recently received J Parkers catalogue - I am sure this was in there. It was so different I remember it! Check it out on the web to see if this is the one you are after. Afraid I have since recycled the catalogue.

the only ones I can find are Cortaderia selloana 'Pink Feather', as Spritz mentions above, or C. selloana 'rosea'. Neither is this colour - but I suspect the one in the picture isn't really that colour either...

A lot of the catalogs Photoshop their pictures to catch the eye. Expect "pink" Pampas Grass to actually bloom pinkish beige. If you notice the slight aura around the blooms, that is evidence of tinting of the photo--the "Photshop" of 30 years ago...yes, some of the catalog photos are even older than that!
