Pampas grass is a hard-working landscape plant. Use it to create a living screen or a border backdrop by planting three to five plants together. Pampas grass is good for erosion control and stabilizing stream banks. Or plant it in landscape beds as a focal point plant. It offers multiple seasons of interest as its white plumes develop and then age to a tawny brown. Pampas grass can also be grown in containers. In Zones 6 and below grow pampas grass in large containers and overwinter it in a greenhouse or heated garage.
