Perennial summer-growing grass.
Barley mitchell grass.
The latitudinal range of Hoop mitchell grass in Australia is between 18 and 28°30'S. The plant can be found at altitudes between 300-1000 m. Burning is undesirable in most years, but mitchell grass recovers well from occasional accidental fires. Rain after the grass have matured and "hayed off" may cause mould growth, making the grass inedible.
