An Australian native grass, this and the next image, "Ischaemum australe". Names stems from Greek, to stop bleeding, a topical use of the wooly seeds. Common name, Large Bluegrass. Grows in wet areas, swamps, and in poor sandy soils. A favoured species for regeneration with native grasses. Usually has two erect and closely appressed branches which come apart to favour seed dispersal. Has robust rhizomes (underground stems) which may confer advantage over introduced grasses.
