Plant Profile: Pampas and Wisteria

Wednesday 20th April 2016
Nature beckons us to perceive it. In doing so, we find alternatives to the traditional and create sensory experiences that are utterly transcendent. What we can summon from the restlessness and fragility of nature is simply beautiful. When orchestrating your wedding flora, why not consider something unanticipated and unforeseen like pampas or wisteria.

“I long for the wild

To lay upon velvety grass, bathing in the soft glow of moonlight,

gazing up at the stars. . .”

Soft in colour and nature, Pampas reflect Autumns rich, creamy colours.  An unexpected intrusion of beauty is encapsulated by the ornamental wild grass. From January to April the feathery pampas leaf will grow, burgeoning to approximately two meters high with prominent midrib and sharp bristling edges. In its youthful savageness, pampas will become quite dense, fading colour as it matures. Ironically, the perennial weed offers a nonchalant romance to an industrial space.

Workshop ideas with your local florist. When incorporating intense agricultural legions such as pampas, council permits may be required. Find florists in your region here.

Such a magnificent sight when in bloom, Wisteria is abundant with long pendent racemes of violet, mauve or velvety tones of fleshy pink. Akin to elastic filaments of cotton candy, the rampant antics of wisteria are invaluable for screening and draping over outdoor balconies and terraces. The dense foliage provides cool shade during the warmer months and acts as a natural insulator in winter. Climbers and creepers are the epitome of estranged natural beauty. Most commonly used to soften the complexion of harsh exteriors, wisteria will inject an unorthodox fragrance and foliage to your ceremony backdrop or arbor.
