Austrostipa stipoides

The toughest and arguably most beautiful grass on the Peninsula, Austrostipa stipoides (or Stipa to its friends) is a low maintenance grass that is commonly used to create the coastal landscape aesthetic. Mass planted, the Stipa looks terrific as it catches the wind and creates flow and movement within the garden. Looks especially attractive when the seed heads form in Summer.
