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.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in the San Marcos Growers library, from online sources, and from observations made of the crops growing in our nursery, plants in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens where we may have observed it. We also have incorporated comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Cortaderia selloana 'Gold Band'.
