An absolutely new and unique plant to the garden scene. Sharp, blue- green needles, with unusually large, attractive tassels of brown seed capsules near their ends, radiate from a central clump. Making quite a stunning hardy, trouble-free specimen in the garden, it is also perfect in a container, or even as a house-plant.
Sow at any time, in a well-lit position, into a good, soil-based compost. Cover seeds thinly and keep moist at around 15 degrees C or 60 degrees F. Some New Zealand species can be very slow indeed and may need cooler temperatures before they will come up. Grass seedlings should be potted on and grown on singly, or in clumps for more rapid establishment of a large specimen.
