This is a plantation specimen in a park in Kilsyth. I think kangaroo grass is the same species across various different cultivars. I must spot some roadside native growth specimens that occur commonly on the roadside to Buxton.

I just checked and I think it is the same. This grass had truly excellent colours several months ago. feint green, yellow, red, violet. Wow it's tough though. Glad I didn't chop it all down now.

Nice martin.
We have some grasses that look very similar but not quite the same. I was hoping you had id'd ours here... :)
