Grass plant up to 1m tall, which forms disperse rootballs or clumps. It presents elongated and flat leaves. Their formations are called espartales or atochares. It is used mainly in dry, poor soils and for landscaping. The fiber of the leaves is used for handcrafts.
Dig a hole at least two or three times as wide and deep as the root ball. Take out the plant from the container and loosen roots to allow them to spread out in all direction. Cut possible broken roots. Mix the soil extracted with a substrate and fill part of the hole with the mixture obtained. Place the plant in the hole and cover with the remaining mixture. Compact the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.
