Eskdale is the largest Poa, which makes it great at outcompeting weeds. It is one of the most reliable and beautiful plants used on roadsides. Eskdale looks much better in both Summer and Winter than the common form, producing tussocks with much less straw per plant. While other Poa labillardieri look untidy, Eskdale looks better for longer. This plant grows in most soil types and will survive in hotter more humid areas than the common form.

Eskdale was developed through Ozbreed's breeding program. It was a Poa that shined above others and was selected after a few generations of breeding from a hot, dry area. The one plant that resulted from vigorous testing, showed higher drought tolerance, less browning of leaves, a more blue leaf and the ability to look good through the tough Australian summers, followed by freezing cold winters.

Whether it is used as an under story, garden plant or a ground cover, Eskdale performs well. Eskdale is easily the best, low cost, fast establishing roadside or mass planting plant available. Specialized conditions are required for areas similar in climate to Brisbane (i.e: shade in Brisbane).
