This native perennial herb is dioecious (male and female flowers on separate plants).Rhizomes 3-7 mm diameter, covered in closely sheathing, imbricating, dark brown scales, 10-20 mm long, each enclosing a tuft of coarse brown hairs. It flowers in October - December and fruits in December - March. They offer a distinctive orange-brown tinge to the landscape.

They thrive in coastal areas, estuaries, saltmarshes, dunes and sandy flats and hollows. Occasionally, they are found inland in gumland scrub, along lake margins, fringing peat bogs or surrounding hot springs.
