Cortaderia selloana 'Gold Band' (Gold Band Pampas Grass) - A slow growing, compact evergreen plant growing to a height of 6 ft. The thin rough-textured green leaves have narrow bands of yellow along the margins. As with the other Cortaderias, 'Gold Band' is tolerant of both heat and cold. It grows best in well-draining, fertile soil with regular watering. It will grow slower in poor, dry soils. It makes a stunning accent plant. Although we have never had seedlings of this plant appear in our garden and this cultivar has not been identified as a weed pest, there is growing concern about the planting of any Pampas Grass and we have discontinued production of all cultivars of it. Care should be exercised when planting any Cortaderia cultivar in locations where seed may spread into sensitive habitat.  This description is based on our research and the observations we have made of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Cortaderia selloana 'Gold Band'.
