Chionochloa flavicans, Te Mata snowtussock

This Te Mata Peak plant is only found on the Peak, so it’s particularly special. It’s like a half-sized toetoe, perfect for gardens and with glorious straw coloured seed heads which come out in late November and December. Frost hardy, Chionochloa flavicans or Te Mata snow tussock, likes well drained soil, and open sunny sites.
