Cymbopogon refractus

(This plant is NOT on the Australian Noxious Weed List)

Native to the Australian States of Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and Northern Territories where it grows in sclerophyl forests, woodlands and grasslands. Barbed Wire Grass grows in coastal, tropical, sub-tropical, arid, semi-arid climates. When the foliage is crushed it emits a lemon or citron odour. It is an important understorey plant.

A warm climate, aromatic, tufted perennial or clumping grass growing to 1.0 metre on poor,  nutrient deficient soils. It is adaptable to soils, very drought resistant, soil salinity and waterlogging resistant but needs a full sun – semi shaded position. It dislikes frost below minus 10 degrees Celsius.

It has a reasonable fodder value and as long as grazing pressure is not too high can survive long periods of drought. It will not survive set stocking or intense grazing.

This grass is very tolerant of dry sites such as eroded areas, quarries and mines with rocky, skeletal substrates without topsoils.

This plant grows readily from seed.

Offered is a packet of 100 seeds and Grownotes to assist you in propagation.
