A fast growing perennial plant 30-50 cm tall with blue-green grass like foliage that produces yellow star shape flowers on long spikes from spring to summer.

Easy to propagate from seed, ideal for landscaping or rock gardens.

Prefers a rich well-drained soil in an open sunny position. During the hottest months water 2 or 3 times a week and allow but allow drying off after.

A native to NSW and Tasmania.

Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C

  1. Sow seed 2mm deep.
  2. Water with fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed.
  3. Place in a warm shaded or semi shaded position to avoid dying out.
  4. Keep warm & moist, avoid drying out or waterlogging the growing mix.
  5. Germination generally occurs in around 14-28 days in the right condition.

General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
