Distribution

Poa labillardieri is found predominantly in the south-eastern regions of Australia from north of Brisbane to the Adelaide Hills in red gum woodland, dry sclerophyll forest and riparian scrub.

Description

Poa labillardieri is a dense perennial tussock grass with long, slender, soft, greyish-green or blue-green leaves in a weeping habit. Depending on aspect and soil, Poa labillardieri grows from 30 to 80 cm tall. Delicate plume like flowerheads in spring to summer extend above the foliage up to 1.2 metres. This is a very graceful attractive grass.

Habitat/Soil

Poa labillardieri prefers moist well drained soils, but will grow on slightly dry soils. It is not very well suited to growing on harsh shallow soils.

Sowing

Poa labillardieri grass can be sown as seed direct into prepared soil in autumn or winter and will germinate readily if there is adequate soil moisture. Growth will be slow initially and increases through the spring.

Uses

Because of its attractive form, Poa labillardieri is good for landscaping either as individual contrast plants or in massed plantings. It can also be used as fodder for grazing animals. While the volume of production is high, the quality of the fodder is not high.
