Poa labillardierei, also known as common tussock-grass,[2] is a species of tussock grass that is endemic to Australia.

Elegant versatile native tussock grass especially useful for erosion control. Happy in any soil, especially wetter areas. Feathery flowerheads in summer add to the appeal. Often recommended in local council planting lists and for bushland gardens.

    Nice grass

    I read that this grass is a host plant for quite a few different species of butterflies. The grass doesn't look particularly exciting to me, but as I want to create habitat for butterflies, it seems like an important plant to grow. I want to have so many butterflies in my yard that it gives the neighbours something to talk about.
