This is a large tussock-forming grass with green or blue-green leaves. Some leaves usually remain green all year but most become straw-coloured when dry in Summer. Butterfly-attracting.

Best in full or partial sun with moist soils, but they withstand most conditions.



In the past, the leaves of most native grasses were regularly eaten (pruned) by wallabies or kangaroos, so will benefit from being cut back to about 5cm in mid- to late Autumn. Cutting back earlier risks the sun burning the parts where the new leaves will grow from.
