As summer comes to an end (and we are promised some relief from the heat) we will start to see blooms on ornamental grasses. Here at Creekside, Blue Bayou Pampas Grass is already showing off its cream-colored plumes. Blue Bayou is a dwarf Pampas Grass, growing to be about 5’ tall. It is a well-behaved, shorter alternative to traditional Pampas Grass. The name “Blue Bayou” comes from its unique, blue-tinted foliage. It is drought-tolerant, and has exceptional salt tolerance.
