Ornamental grasses and grasslike plants
Native to South Africa. Rushlike plant has stems that radiate from the base to form a dense clump 3–5 ft. tall and 4–6 ft. wide. Makes a striking, elegant accent in the ground or in a pot, particularly when a breeze produces a play of light and shadow on its stems. Papery bracts at each stem joint turn from tan to dark brown, then drop off. Narrow clusters of dark brown flower heads (male and female blossoms are on separate plants) top each shoot.
