Toetoe

Cortaderia fulvida, Cortaderia richardii, Cortaderia splendens, Cortaderia toetoe, Toe toe, Toitoi

A general term for large tussock-like grasses and sedges, especially those with sharp edges to the leaves. New Zealand native toetoe is different from pampas grass, which was first introduced to New Zealand in the 19th century. Pampas grass is very much larger, and more upright than toetoe which is more delicate in form, does not grow so tall, and is a more arching shape.
