Short Description: Purple Pampas Grass Seeds. Purple Pamapas grass lends a royal bend to your landscape. The deep hues and slight shades of its coloration can add accents and highlights to any landscape feature. Planted in conjunction with other vibrantly colored plantings will balance out most landscapes.
Details: Pampas grass is a large perennial grass native to Brazil, Argentina and Chile. Its common name is in obvious reference to the Argentine grasslands (the pampas) where it grows.It grows in large clumps eight to ten or more, feet high, bearing in late summer silvery-white, purple, reddish, bluish, or pinkish silken plumes which rise to a height of 12 plus feet, with proper care and fertilization, Pampas grass can grow to 18 feet. The plume-like inflorescence differs between male and female plants. Female plants produce plumes that are broad and full due to silky hairs covering the tiny flowers. Male plumes appear narrow and thin because of the absence of hair on the flowers. Pampas grass can be a very attractive and functional plant when used correctly in the landscape. It can be used as a specimen plant in isolated locations on large lawns. Because it grows very rapidly into a massive plant, pampas grass is an excellent screening plant for sunny locations. The plant will look great the first year, and after several years it will grow so large that it becomes a spectacular specimen in your landscape.

I asked a question three times about some seeds I purchased from them. still waiting for answer. Its been over two weeks. I won't buy from them any more.
Purchased monkey puzzle tree seeds. They arrived on time and in acceptable packaging, but the seeds are way too tiny. This type of tree produces large seeds, usually 1.5 to 2 inches in length. The seeds I received where not even 1/16 of an inch.
Emailed seller twice regarding my surprise and concern and have not received a response.
My recommendation: Find another seller.
