Poa cita 

Silver tussock grass

From New Zealand, this is a densely tufted evergreen tussock grass with fine, silvery-green foliage and a graceful, flowing habit. 

The flowering stems are fine and slender with small buff coloured panicles.

The genus Poa is distributed around the world and has distinctly agricultural origins with many species used as pasture grass in alpine conditions. 

Don't let that heritage deter you as Poa cita is a very refined cultivar that thrives in difficult places. 

It has inherited the ability to tolerate extremely poor conditions including coastal, windy sites, poor soil and drought.
