Winter, what a shame to lose such a fab plant. I've always like Pampass Grass, and never had one, until we moved here 2.5 years ago. But funny enough, I didn't know what this huge messy grass thing was at the end of a bed, because it never flowered. I put a photo of it on the old board last year, and everyone said it was Pampass. I was delighted, and a few weeks later, for the first time, it started throwing up these long stalks, which eventually turned into the big feathery pink plumes. The house had been empty for about 2 years before we came here and there had been little or no garden maintenance, so I guess it just needed the tidying and clearing out that I'd been doing since we arrived. It just took so time to recover I suppose. Will you buy a small one to put somewhere else?
