From New Zealand comes the amazing legendary "Hunangemoho Grass". Low, tidy clumps of sharp green blades erupt into thick, strong, arching stems, supporting massive, 18 inch divided golden sprays. Impresses all of our visitors growing strongly in our New Zealand gardens here.
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.
Common name:Plumed Tussock Grass, Hunangemoho Grass
