Best Vases for Pampas Grass

Best Vases for Pampas Grass

So, you've got your Pampas Grass, now, how do you display it? Why are there so many types of vases, what height do you need and which vase is best for Pampas Grass?

It's okay, don't stress! I've scoured the internet to find loads of options that suit all sorts of interiors so hopefully there's something in here that will work for you. 

But, if not, here's your checklist when shopping for your Pampas Grass Vase.

The Maths

Take a look at the height of your Pampas Grass. The tallest grass we sell is 115cm tall.
50cm is the length of the plumes (the fluffy bit), leaving 65cm as the length of the stems.

We recommend that the vase is at least half of the height of the stems.
In this case, no less than 30cm and no more than 50cm in height will work for tall Pampas Grass. 

Fancy another example?

You may have a tabletop bouquet of Pampas Grass that is 70cm tall in total.
If the length of the stem is 25cm, then you should look for a vase that is no smaller than 12.5-15cm tall.

There's still one more thing to think about; 
the neck width of the vase.

How tall would you like your Pampas Grass to stand? Some would like their stems to stand upright and as tall as possible whereas some prefer a more relaxed look.

This is where the neck width becomes important. 

To keep them standing upright, a taller vase will work better, but, if you have your heart set on a shorter vase, here's a good rule of thumb; 

Neck Width = 1cm per Pampas Stem. 

For example, if you have 5 stems of Pampas, the neck width of your vase should be 5-6cm. 

For 10 stems, aim for 10-11cm 

Here's some vase ideas and where you can buy them so that you can recreate the look at home;

Florist's Tip:
In this image from The Design Villa, it is likely that they've used oasis foam for artificial and dried flowers in the base of vase and poked the stems into it to keep them tall!

Florist's Tip
: If you want your Pampas Grass to stand even taller, use an opaque vase like these and put newspaper in the base to give it extra height!

I am speechless! These arrangements are absolutely beautiful and perfect! Great job. It makes me want to have them all🙂 I’m looking towards the taller upright grasses in a tall vase, I’d like to put it besides a table in the living room
