This hardy specimen produces long knobbly bronze seedheads on a tight growing clump of stiff, dark green whippy stems. It is ideal as an isolated specimen either in gravel or hanging over the edge of a pond.
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.
