Plant list - Grasses

Native grasses are important landscape features that play a major role in revegetation. We stock a range from Poa labillardierei, which grows to impressive tufts 60 cm high, to the beautiful, soft Poa sieberiana 'Tiny Tuft'.

The grasses that we sell are generally suitable for drier sites, though Button Grass, which is really a sedge, likes it wet. Deschampsia cespitosa also likes a bit of dampness.

Most grasses are sold in square tubes, with some available in larger pots. Poa labillardierei and Poa sieberana are available in cell trays of 48 for $25, or 24 for $15.
