romantic grass of the week: Chordifex fastigiatus broader range than yesterday's C.dimorphus.. from Budawangs to Gosford but also found in Queensland in sandy ground in heath and scrub. its a stripey one iwth dark broawn closely appressed leaf sheaths, erect 30-100cm, branched but branchlets are sparse and barren. spikelets narrow 4-7mm long, male spikelets with everal flowers femal spikelets with 1 fertile flower. can differentiate from other stripey rushes because the sheath stripe is straight and the stems dont get into a tangled or flexi mess.
