Author's notes

This is the very robust form of African Lovegrass, which is most commonly seen round Cobargo and Bermagui. What distinguishes it from some of the larger native Poa tussocks is the blue-green colour of the foliage and the greyish (not purplish) florets. Council had been notified of these plants.
