Poa spp. ‘POL11’

Compact, clean, & no fuss. Perfect for mass plantings.

  • A low-maintenance plant
  • Tidy, compact form providing clear line of sight
  • Lovely green foliage

Compared to other common Poa tussock grasses, Rustic™ Poa really stands out from the crowd.

Its rustic foliage provides a unique colour contrast to other plants, which is even more enhanced by its seasonal changes. Its green toned foliage turns brown quicker than other Poas, yet it keeps living year after year provided it is cut back every year or every two years.

Being 40% more compact than Eskdale Blue™ Poa, the Rustic™ Poa is a great contrasting companion plant for low-cost Australian native grass gardens or landscapes. It benefits from a cut back due to the abundance of rustic compact foliage that gives this plant a distinct look.
