People Are Building Incredible Pampas Grass Christmas Trees
Cortaderia selloana, known more commonly as pampas grass, grows in creamy white feathery plumes and look very ornamental even when it's simply growing in a field, making it a great choice for an extra festive Christmas tree. Pampas grass can grow to be anywhere between five and 10 feet high and wide.
Pampas grass is native to southern South America, including the Pampas region after which it is named. It grows extremely quickly and can spread and form large masses along roads, cliffs, riverbanks and open areas when it grows undisturbed in the wild.
Madison Quinn, an Instagram florist, posted a picture of her pampas tree decorated with gold and white baubles with the caption, "Deck the halls with all the pampas falalalalalala".
Madison's tree is made entirely from pampas. She said: "My labour of love is ready for her debut, introducing my pampas xmas tree made of literally 100% pampas grass. Maddie & I couldn't help but have a little photoshoot this morning to celebrate!"
One person commented: "OH MY GOSHHHHHHH!!!!! This is gorgeous girl!"
Another woman added: "Wow!! This is goals."
A third concurred, they posted: "Best Xmas tree ever!!"
Another Instagram account posted a gorgeous picture of their pampas Christmas tree, this one featured longer plumes and even bigger bronze, white and gold balloon baubles. "MERRY PAMPAS", the caption begins.
"Let the magic of Christmas begin! Kicking the festive season off with a pampas grass Christmas tree & balloon baubles like you have never seen before".

A woman shared a beautifully festive snap of her pampas Christmas tree which appears to have extra furry plumes which kind of resembles a big yeti or an abominable snowman. The tree has no baubles but is wrapped with simplistic, white Christmas lights.
An Instagram account dedicated to 'architectural pampas and interior arrangements' posted a cute picture of a child decorated a pink-ish pampas Christmas tree with a glittery pink star on top. Cortaderia jubata is the name given to the species which produces pink or purple-ish coloured panicles.
