I'm in zone 5, which is supposed to be too cold for Pampas grass. However, I decided to try my luck and bought some seed. How much will it grow in one season? We've been having pretty mild winters (for Ohio) the last few years, so I figured it's worth a shot. Tamara
I have not grown pampas grass from seed, but I have grown in from a 4" pot of it - put in fairly late. It grew 3-4 feet that year. In my zone 5 it did not make it through the winter. There are some nice similar miscanthus that would to consider.
