New Zealand’s native grasslands are dominated by a variety of tussock grasses. Tussock grasslands, or tussocklands, form a vast and distinctive landscape on New Zealand’s South Island. New Zealand has about 190 native grass species. The native tussocks belong to three genera - Chionochloa, Poa and Festuca. Grasses favour open areas. Very few grow under a closed forest. A few grow on sand dunes or coastal cliffs, but they do not form extensive grasslands.

Wetland Tussock Grass _ Flora, New Zealand, South Island, DSC_2116

Farmers use to burn off large areas of tussock grass and replace it with imported grasses so that they could graze more livestock. Today attitudes are changing with tussock grasslands now being considered as important native ecosystems. A tussock is not actually a single group of related plants but a growth habit – a particular arrangement of stems, or tillers and leaves which forms a tuft of vegetation.

Red tussocks grow on South Island as far south as North Canterbury. They are found mostly below the tree line on poorly drained soils that are often peaty and acidic. Tussock grasses have a ‘clumping’ growth form with their stems fan upwards and outward from a central bunch. This growth form helps them to survive.
