Longhair Plume Grass
A very decorative grass to 1.5m in height, native to New Guinea and Australasia, where it grows in coastal areas, in grasslands and woodlands. It is particularly notable thanks to its elegant, feathery, yellowish inflorescences, sometimes presenting discrete reddish-brown tints. Its stalks are sometimes used in the fabrication of a special, strong type of paper. It will grow well in tropical and temperate climates in USDA Zones 8 and above.
