Occurrence. Rare. The local records are for Mt Alexander and Porcupine Flat (Maldon).
The local species is a small grass-like plant that grows in shallow water or wet mud-flats. It is usually only a few centimetres high but may reach 20cm or more.
In the Carboniferous period, the ancestors of quillwort grew to large trees.
Native to southern Australia.
Because of its grass-like appearance, Quillwort can be easily overlooked e.g. see photo 3.
isotes = equal seasons (evergreen); drummondii possibly after J. Drummond, a WA botanist 1774-163.
