Colour from the season - Pampas grass

Pampas grass - the very fashionable  architectural/ornamental grass hugely popular in the 80's -  which I just discovered some interesting facts about, and thought I'd share. 
It's indigenous to South America, is a fantastic animal feed, considered hugely invasive in some climates producing around one million seeds in it's lifetime and ...lastly (!) if you have one in your front garden it's a sign that you're a 'swinger' - oh and it's a lovely colour...
