    Pampas grass is considered an invasive species, which means that it is capable of overtaking a setting in which it is growing, robbing the soil of nutrients and moisture. This has an adverse effect on other species that are growing in the same spot, so in that sense, pampas grass is bad for the environment. It thrives in dry, sunny conditions, and since its plants produce millions of seeds, its surface area multiplies in little time. Furthermore, its leaves are notoriously sharp, which can lead to injuries in residential or public use areas.
