Burra Weeping grass (Microlaena Stipoides var. Burra) is adapted to a very wide variety of soil types. Some types have a broad range of pH adaptation. General rule of thumb is that most prefer acidic soils. Some varieties of this grass can survive in strongly acidic soils and others in alkaline soil.


This is an extremely versatile and useful grass. Weeping grass has an attractive appearance, persistence and high grazing value, as well as tolerance of shade and acid soils. This means this grass is an incredibly popular choice across all industries. Weeping grass is a great option for roadsides, municipal parks and gardens as it requires little to no maintenance. This native provides persistent ground cover once established and requires mowing roughly 3-4 times a year. The dense foliage and soft leaves means that this grass produces a very high quality lawn. If you have issues where shading is common from buildings, fences and trees, this is the grass you need.

Golf course roughs – Weeping grass does not grow too tall and will permit mis-hit balls to be found.

Pastures in acid soils of moderate to high rainfall where high quality fodder, low fertilizer needs and persistence are valued.

Revegetation in conjunction with other native grasses for river and stream edges to reduce erosion.

Inter-row sowing and within-row sowing in vineyards and other horticulture where the persistence of the grass, its low growth and its shade tolerance make it a good choice in the right districts.

This product is APPROVED for distribution in Western Australia and Nationally.
