Description
Themeda australis - 'Kangaroo Grass' (formerly known as Themeda triandra) is 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 heathland it is reduced to a protrate groundcover, in sheltered coastal aspects in will form tall leafy tussocks, and inland it often has shorter growing foliage forming a medium sized clump.
