Evergreen tufted perennial sedge (1m x 0.5m) from Australia, New Zealand, South America & South Africa. Leaves reduced to sheaths at the base of the stems. Globular reddish brown flower heads just below the stem apex in summer. Useful planted in groups as a feature for its vertical form and texture particularly in association with grasses and water. Ideal for binding sandy soils and bogs. Great architectural feature in either full sun or part shade.
