Themeda australis – Kangaroo Grass
(formerly known as Themeda triandra)
A medium size, tufted warm season grass with green foliage turning reddish brown to purple in winter. It is a widely occurring grass and its form changes according to aspect and region. On coastal heath land it is reduced to a prostrate ground cover, in sheltered coastal aspects in will form tall leafy tussocks, and inland it often has shorter growing foliage forming a medium sized clump. Care should be taken when buying Themeda for projects to ensure you get the right form.
