Cortaderia selloana, commonly known as pampas grass, is a flowering plant native to southern South America, including the pampas after which it is named. It is a tall grass, growing in dense tussocks that can reach a height of 3m. (10 ft). The leaves are evergreen, long and slender, 1-2 m (3 ft 3 in-6 ft 7 in) long and 1 cm broad, with very sharp edges. The plant was introduced to Europe, North America and Australia as an ornamental grass, and, to a lesser extent, to provide food for grazing animals. The feathery flower head plumes, when dried, are widely used in flower arrangements and other ornamental displays.
