This exotic, elegant member of the grass-like Restio family features handsome, reed-like, arching stems covered with whorls of fine, fern-like foliage. Blooms rise above tall, stately clumps in spring. This tough, cold hardy and adaptable species makes an excellent specimen for container or border and is stunning in mass plantings.
