I wanted to share a picture of the Pampas Grass we have growing at the edge of our driveway by the road. It is very pretty this year. Pampas grass is one of those perennials you see just about everywhere and if you plant it, you'd darn well better be sure you're not going to change your mind about where you want it, because it is almost impossible to get rid of. Like I said, ours is in an open area down by the road. It can get as large as it wants and won't hurt a thing. The pampas grass and the prickly pear cactus are in the same flower bed. It will be interesting to see which plant wins the battle of space! I used to have a beautiful Clematis planted in front of the wagon wheel. It died out this spring and I plan on replacing it this coming spring. Clematis is such a pretty and easy plant to care for. And they bloom their little hearts out.
