Florists love the pampas grass (cortaderia) as a light brown background for subtle or even colorful arrangements. Resourceful Christmas tree decorators have made the arrangement a little larger. In the center hides a hollow framework of slats and rabbit wire. Around the outside, an entire Christmas tree is created from fresh pampas grass. It dries with time, but does not prick or needle.
Pampas grass fits perfectly in a home full of light, warm browns and beiges. You can decorate the tree just like a fir tree: with baubles, stars and fairy lights. The only thing we haven’t seen on any pampas grass Christmas tree is tinsel.
