Mr. Burbank has experimented very extensively with various types of pampas grass, developing some interesting varieties, by hybridization and selection. The pampas grasses are not as popular now as they were a few years ago, but they are no less beautiful than they were when they had their heyday of popularity. Here is a cluster that may still be seen on Mr. Burbank's farm at Sebastopol. It is worthy of a place of distinction on any lawn.
