Back up the Mt Arthur track, the spear grass was another unconventional beauty. Not the sort a thing you'd plant at the front of a border unless you wanted to deter intruders. It mightn't look welcoming but I wasn't deterred from getting up close and had bloody shins to prove it. So much colour contrast and architectural interest, it's a natural for a feature plant in contemporary style garden.

Choose drought tolerant plants which were raised with low water levels, in the same climate where you will grow them. Harvest rain AND storm water.
