Elegia nuda Overview

Elegia nuda is a neat upright-growing restio. The light green stems (called culms) contrast well with the black flower heads, and planted en masse create a striking swathe. Elegia (Chondropetalum) tectorum is a very well known and over-used restio; why not plant Elegia nuda instead?
