This densely tufted perennial grass grows to about 1.5 metres with large arching flower-heads of a rusty-golden colour. It is growing in the south-west corner of the Reserve as well as in the open Eucalypt forest. When not in flower it can be distinguished from Cymbopogon refractus by the yellow-green leaf colour and the slightly broader leaves. (February 2008)
