One of the hardiest of the New Zealand Hair Sedges, this species forms pleasing mounds of narrow, bronzy-orange leaves. The soft wig-like texture and unusual colour make this an interesting specimen. Especially nice in a rock garden or containers, surrounded by low green or silvery groundcovers. Good winter interest. Self-sown seedlings often appear, or clumps may be increased by dividing in early spring.
