The plant’s foliage is a blue-green colour and forms a dense tussock. In summer, it produces long, slender stems that bear the plant’s flowers. It is an adaptable species and can grow in a range of soil types and climates, making it a popular choice for erosion control, revegetation projects, and garden landscaping. It is also useful for providing habitat and food for native animals.
