Description

Golden-silvery flowerspikes! Very beautiful, forms large and tidy dense clumps, and will not invade surrounding areas.

Chionochloa flavicans is a species of plant in the grass family, endemic to New Zealand.

The leaves, which are up to 12 mm wide, are larger than most tussocks similar to it. The plumes which appear in summer can make it look similar to the toetoe species and so sometimes it is called miniature toetoe. The plumes begin a green colour and as they age turn golden with a silvery shine.

The name is similar to C. flavescens although they visually look quite different. C. flavicans is one of the easier Chionochloa species to identify because of its distinctive plumes.

It is quite widely planted by councils and for highway plantings due to its low maintenance.

Type: Perennial

Height: 150cm, 60"

Location: Sun

Hardiness zones: 6-9

Seeds per pack: 20

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 4 weeks. If not growth appears a cold treatment may be required. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate.
