Contrary to popular opinion, summer planting is fine as long as adequate water is provided throughout any prolonged dry periods. This allows you to take advantage of increased summer growth.
Ficinia spiralis
Height: 0.4m;  Spread: 4m
Pingao (Other)
Pingao was named Desmoschoenus spiralis but genetic research shows it is closely related to Ficinia - a mainly South African genus. It is the frontline of vegetation on moving sand dunes. Striking green/orange colouring.
