ALA reference

This is a tussock forming perennial grass that seems to be scattered through the Reserve in relatively small numbers. The plants that I’ve found are relatively young and haven’t yet formed a real tussock. It grows to a little over a metre in height with a large arching flower spike. (March 2008)
