As a volunteer doing habitat restoration in the San Francisco Bay area,
I find it difficult to believe that anyone would want to grow pampas
grass. It is a terribly invasive plant and crowds out native plants.
Also from my non-professional observations, it also seems to leach out
the soil where it grows.
