Plant / Product Features:
A reed with fine, grey-green leaves, with bark-banded, wire-like, slightly zig-zagging stems forming a large densely erect clump. It spreads slowly from a creeping rhizome. It has both male and female plants and when flowering the female plant takes on a red hue. Prefers full sun but will tolerate semi-shade. In dry rocky situations, it takes on an orangey colour.

Landscaping Uses:
Wetland revegetation. Will grow in normal garden conditions and even in quite dry areas. Has a lovely fluid look and moves gracefully in the wind. Great effect when mass planted. Good for water features and pond edging. Performs well in coastal locations and salt marshes.
