Standard pampas grass is going to be taller and produce the plumes like you described. You might like the following types:

NICK?S COMPACT JUNIPER
Juniperus chinensis 'Nick's Compact'

Juniperus procumbens 'Nana'
These next ones can get wider than 5 feet but can be kept in bounds with some occasional pruning. Some also are much lower than 2'.
