Beautiful and iconic, Kangaroo Grass makes a statement in any garden.
A summer growing grass to 75 cm up to a metre high with good conditions, Kangaroo Grass is hardy in a wide variety of soils although prefers full sun. Seed heads turn a rich red brown in late summer and can be picked to enjoy indoors, lasting sometime.
Great for nature strip planting, as seen here.
After your plant has been growing 2-3 years, cut back or burn the old leaves in late winter to rejuvenate your plant and stimulate new growth. If grown as a lawn, don't cut too low - leave grass 50 cm high.
Kangaroo Grass is used by indigenous Australians for weaving and the seeds can be ground into flour to make bread.
There are a limited number of these plants for sale in 50mm square plastic tubes.
Plant orders are shipped via express post early in the week so the plant arrives in the best possible condition and is not left over the weekend in a transport depot.
Please unpack as soon as possible and water well.
Note: due to quarantine restrictions we are unable to post plants to Tasmania and WA.
