We all know Pampas is here to stay and fits in to any space, but what kind of Pampas should you get? Still living floral offers all kinds of varieties, so which is right for you and your space?
Angel Pampas is a very full-bodied type of pampas. It’s long, wide, and full feathered form is the stuff dreams are made of and makes you feel like your living in a Instagram influencers storyboard. Sometimes it gets confused with Phragmites which is a reed and an invasive species that damages wetlands in North America. Don’t worry! Our Angel Pampas is natural and dried in its native habitat, so there is no chance of spreading in local environments. Angel Pampas is actually Japanese Pampas (Miscanthus sinensis). It grows in North America, Eastern-Asia, and is often known as the Maiden Silver grass. It can grow up to 7 feet tall and the plums can be 2-4 feet wide. Angel Pampas is great for filling out larger spaces such as an entrance way, a staircase, living rooms or bedrooms.
Victorian Pampas is similar to our Angel Pampas, but it is thinner with an elegant arching look and has a more natural and darker tone. It is commonly known as Evita Cortadera. It is most common in South-America but can grow pretty much anywhere as long as it has lots of sun and healthy soil. Use Victorian Pampas to fill in background scenes in your home and you can pair it with other dried florals for an extra touch to add different heights and dimensions to your arrangements.
Free Spirit Pampas is one of the smaller varieties of Pampas grass, but do not let that discourage you! Free Spirit is extremely full, versatile, and has neutral tones that lend it to a diverse mixture of styles and home décor themes. It mixes very well with other dried florals like Billy Buttons, Hydrangeas, Bunny tails, White Festive Pampas, Palm Leaves, and White Cattails to name a few. Because Free Spirit Pampas is around 21” tall, it’s great to put on shelves, mantles, as a centerpiece of a table, and so much more.
Snowy Pampas is a cross between Victorian and Angel Pampas. It is not quite as full as the Angel Pampas but is just as long and tall. It comes in 5 stem bundles, which gives it the bushy and voluptuous look that we all know and love. Snowy Pampas isn’t naturally white and is died using all natural and environmentally safe white dyes, which will give anyone with an environmental focus some piece of mind.
