It is extremely fire resistant and rapidly grows back. It thrives in poor, sandy soils. It grows in small clumps of stems that are 1 1/3” – 3” tall. Usually, the old leaves and culms are still on the plant when the new ones begin to appear. The new culms, or hollow stems, are light to medium green and have tiny hairs. They can be slightly tapered to slightly flattened and usually hidden by sheaths. The leaves are also light to medium green. As they age, they turn purplish to an orange color.
