Gladiator™ Lepidosperma has fine, slightly arching leaves that are deep green, which is complimented by its unique flower heads that start off yellow in late spring, then mature to dark brown to complete the Gladiator look.

If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Cut back to 30cm above the ground, or half the height if required after 3–7 years.
