This is a personal favourite of ours. This handsome New Zealand native perennial grass makes an impressive addition to any garden.It is a large grass that has bright green long narrow and billowing leaves when planted in a shady position. When planted in the full sun the foliage will appear golden. With maturity the plant will form almost a trunk of old leaves. This species is suitable for very wet and damp conditions - especially recommended for around water features,swamps or the edge of ponds.
