A most attractive, trouble free, tussock-forming specimen with attractive, slightly hairy leaves and large, dark nut-brown umbels of seed. 'The largest and finest of the woodrushes.' (Rick Darke, 'Ornamental Grasses').
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.
