Narrowleaf carpetgrass

Scientific nameAxonopus fissifolius, formerly A. affinis
CharacteristicsClosely related to broadleaf carpetgrass. While its leaf blades are appreciably narrower (50-60%) than those of broadleaf carpetgrass, narrowleaf carpetgrass is still a coarse-textured species. It is more drought tolerant and better suited to drier shallower soils than broadleaf carpetgrass, and is typically the dominant species in low soil fertility run-down dairy pastures in southern Queensland and northern New South Wales. However, as a turfgrass, it forms a moderately dense sward of medium quality.
