Attractive Australian native sedge which clumps up on the edges of ponds. The plant is great habitat for a variety of insects, and creates shelter for frogs

Other Uses: Has been used to remove excess pollutants/nutrients from waterways. For this reason an excellent filter plant for the home pond. Simply cut back the leaves every couple of months and place around the veggies/fruit trees -  As long as your pond water isn't polluted, in which case discard appropriately.


Grow this plant in a sunny or partly shaded position sitting on the edge of the pond or in floating wetlands where roots can try and reach the bottom of the pond increasing plant's ability to capture nutrients.  

Easily shaped and hedged if trained from a young age to maturity. Enjoys well drained soils with adequate moisture. Responds well to regular pruning.
