Bluish-green native saline and freshwater rush with dark bands along the stem of the fine green/grey leaves. Spreads slowly. Does well in a range of soils and moisture regimes. Requires full sun to flourish.
Found mostly in estuaries, salt marshes, dunes and sandy flats and hollows.
At Wai-ora, we grow these in our specially designed water beds in order to minimise shock when planting out into wet sites.
