Heteropogon contortus is a hardy, robust grass with golden brown colours. This gracefully arching grass has flowers and seeds from October to March. In autumn it has beautiful golden and brown colours. This is a palatable grass.
Plant as a backdrop to a grassland garden or mass plant behind a colourful bed for a beautiful effect. Interesting containers can also be planted up with Spear grass.
It is also useful as a soil stabilizer. As with all grasses it should be cut back once a year and raked to remove the thatch.
