Jubata Grass, Pampas Grass

Cortaderia selloana and Cortaderia jubata, Pampas grass or Jubata Grass, are species of grass known by several common names, including purple pampas grass and Andean pampas grass. Jubata is similar to its more widespread relative, the pampas grass Cortaderia selloana, but it can get quite a bit taller, approaching seven meters in height at maximum.

All Corataderia are fire prone and should be avoided or removed in the defensible space zone.

Care & Maintenance:

All Corataderia are fire prone and should be avoided or removed in the defensible space zone. There is no maintenance routine that significantly reduces fie hazard in Corataderia.
