    Introducing Panicum 'Lama Rossa', translated from the Italian for red blade. After many years of growing this Panicum we have decided to give it a name. Upright to about 1m in height like its parent plant 'Heavy Metal'. The main difference between this and 'Heavy Metal' is in the colour - it has red tips to the blades which age to being a dark burgundy. Then as Summer wanes this Panicum puts on a cloak of autumnal hues - claret, sanguine, maroon and bronze before fading into its Winter wheaton colours. A proven performer.

    Poa gunnii

    Buy 1 for $12.00 / Buy 5 for $50.00

    In our attempt to experiment with native grasses for landscape use we found Poa gunnii. This Poa is a Tasmanian endemic tussock grass that grows well in alpine regions and on the coast in Tasmania. We have found that it makes a great balcony container plant in our extreme climate (nothing like Tassie). We are conducting more in-ground trials but thought we would offer a few for sale for anyone else willing to experiment. Suggested for cooler climes. 60 x 60cm.
