Gahnia sieberiana, common name red-fruit saw sedge, can form very large clumps 1.5 to 2 metres in diameter with flowering stems reaching 3 metres. The flowers occur in spring and summer at the ends of the stems in long clusters (pannicles) and are black in colour. The flowers are followed by shiny, red-brown seeds about 4 mm long.
Significance to the Ganai community.
The red fruits (nuts) were crushed and ground before eating. The leaf bases are also edible
