Themeda australis Blue Roo PPAP
Themeda australis ‘THEM01’ PPAF - Introducing a prostrate
form of kangaroo grass, selected for its dense growth habit, great grey-blue to maroon foliage and low-growing habit. A seedling selection from another weeping form called Mingo, Blu Roo was selected because it has the same great foliage and form, but with a more “full” look. Bloom: Red-brown spikelets with prominent awns and spathes borne on branched stems, so heavy they often lay over and sit directly on the sprays of foliage. Blooms in summer.
