Pampas grass, a flowering plant native to South America, including the Pampas region from where it bears its name, is instantly recognisable for its grass-like foliage and feathery plumes that can grow over 2metres in height. It will look stunning in your garden, but even more so in your wedding flower arrangements. Here are some ideas for how to use it.

1. Bride’s bouquet

Don’t you just love how whimsical this bouquet looks?

6. Chair bouquets

Move over gypsophila! Why not use small bits of the grass for the chair bouquets for your ceremony? Whether at a church or at the beach, they’ll make for something a little extraordinary.
