The cultural meaning of pampas grass
Pampas grass has a particular cultural meaning. Not many of us know (although some experienced it firsthand) that the pampas grass put in your front garden is a calling card for swinging!
It appears that what was once a typical, innocent plant, gently blown by the wind in the light of the sunset, far from the human’s eye, now attracts strangers who can’t help but wink when passing by your front door.
The plant’s association with swinging has been soon dismissed as a myth by pampas enthusiasts. Yet, a broadcaster (see may be influenced) Mariella Frostrup said she had inadvertently identified herself as a swinger by planting the grasses outside her Notting Hill home. Next time, don’t forget to mind the viewing and your location.
Yet, you don’t have to feel influenced by things like these if you don’t live in a particular area. Outside, probably no one will get these symbolics anyway.
