Wool grass is an upright densely tufted indigenous perennial grass with blue-green leaves which are mainly borne at the base of the plant. It is a highly palatable pasture suited for arid regions on sandy, sandy loam and gravelly soils. Wool grass is mainly used as a permanent pasture for grazing and produces excellent foggage. It is also sometimes used as a pasture in pasture/crop rotations. Furthermore, its blue-green leaves and up-straight growth habit makes it a popular ornamental grass.
