Info

Large New Zealand grass, from the group of handsome, tussock-forming grasses known commonly as toetoes, this species found in swamps and wet areas on the North Island of Tauranga. Like the related pampas grasses, flowers appear in white plumes on nearly erect spikes that stand above the arching, narrow-leaved, tooth-edged foliage, but flowering time is earlier, from late spring to mid summer. Plants are large in this form, 6-9' tall x 4-8' wide and perform well in the garden in full sun. These plants enjoy summer moisture but tolerate some summer drought. Frost hardy in USDA zone 7.
