Using Grasses

Tussock Grass

I have been including native grasses in my garden for a few years. They add a contrast and movement. Tussock Grass, Poa labilliardierei, has done well this season. It is in a position to take advantage of the extra rainfall.

It is a dense tussocky grass with thin leaves and is over a metre tall. When the wind blows the grass sways and looks good against the stone wall in the background.
