Chrysopogon zizanioides (Vetiver)
Chrysopogon zizanioides is a non-invasive type of grass that grows in clumps.
A great choice for preventing soil erosion as its root system grows densely straight downward instead of spanning out from the plant.
The roots create some what of a curtain beneath the soil trapping sediment and slowing down water flow.
Vetiver is a versatile plant found in many pharmacological and cosmetic products.
