Ornamental Grass: Potted Perennial Plant

Cortaderia, Eragrostis, Hakonechloa, Panicum

How to Plant

Planting Potted Plants:

  • Choose a location in full sun with moist, well-drained soil.
  • Prepare the bed by turning the soil under to a depth of 6-12 inches removing any debris, and lightly raking as level as possible.
  • The addition of organic matter (leaf mold, compost, well-rotted manure) benefits all gardens and is essential in recently constructed neighborhoods.
  • Plant on a cloudy day or in late afternoon to reduce transplant shock.
  • Dig a hole for each plant large enough to amply accommodate the root ball.
  • Unpot the plant and gently loosen the root ball with your hands to encourage good root growth.
  • Place the top of the root ball even with the level of the surrounding soil. Fill with soil to the top of the root ball. Press soil down firmly with your hand.
  • Use the plant tag as a location marker.
  • Thoroughly water and apply a light mulch layer on top of the soil (1-2 inches) to conserve water and reduce weeds.

How to Grow

  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their germination.
  • Mulches also help retain soil moisture and maintain even soil temperatures. For perennials, an organic mulch of aged bark or shredded leaves lends a natural look to the bed and will improve the soil as it breaks down in time.  Always keep mulches off a plant’s stems to prevent possible rot.
  • Careful watering is essential in getting perennials off to a good start. Water thoroughly at least once a week to help new roots grow down deeply. Soil should be damp at about 1 inch below the soil surface. You can check this by sticking your finger in the soil. Water early in the morning to give all leaves enough time to dry.  One inch of rain or watering per week is recommended for most perennial plants. You can check to see if you need to add water by using a rain gauge.
  • Until plants become established, some protection from extreme winds and direct, hot sunlight may be necessary.  Good air movement is also important.
  • After new growth appears, a light fertilizer may be applied. Keep granular fertilizers away from the plant crown and foliage to avoid burn injury. Use low rates of a slow release fertilizer, as higher rates may encourage root rots.
  • Cut plants back in March before new growth appears.

Growing Tips

  • Cut some seed heads for dried flower arrangements, but leave some to provide food for wildlife over the winter, as well as winter interest in the garden.
  • Ornamental grasses are low-maintenance once established.
  • For varieties that stay green year round, remove dead foliage as opposed to cutting back the entire plant.

Cortaderia, Pink Pampas is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally it bloomed! Well worth it! I bought this pampas grass 3 years ago . We moved to a new home and I even dug it up and brought it with me as I knew it would take several years to show its true beauty. It takes a long time to grow but it is beautiful once it does. I have gotten compliments this month on how "cool" and "beautiful" it is. Thanks again Burpee. Can always count on your product. Warning: If you want it to bloom right away, this is NOT the grass for you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pampa Grass I am sure it would have been beautiful but the plants died. I watered like it said yet they just didn't take hold ☹️

Rated 2 out of 5 by from no growth I had purchased three of the grasses last spring. Since planting, they had doubled in size.. I was pretty excited over the winter months to see how big they would get this summer. (I did trim them back to 4 inches from the ground once they had turned brown in the winter) My grasses have yet to turn green or grow any, from the 4 inch brown sprigs i have in the flower beds. I am so disappointed : /

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very small plant for $13.00! Ordered 2 of these and just received them. What a disappointment, they are only 4 inches tall in little 3 inch pots. Really can't plant these where I was going to, will take years to grow. Don't " waste" your money!!!
