Spiny-Headed Mat-Rush

Climate- temperate to arid across the East coast of Australia
A clumping grass to 1m tall with dark green strap like leaves 1cm wide. It has attractive spiky flower heads which are heavily scented.
In spring, soak the seeds for 10 days and then sow.

Keep the plants moist when young. Established plants can be divided.

The raw leaf bases can be chewed and have a taste not unlike peas. The straps of the plants have been used in basket making.
