Bluegrass / Poa
Poa is a genus of grasses that is found in both the eastern and western hemisphere. They are usually called meadow-grass, bluegrass, tussock or speargrass.
The name Poa was made by the Greeks to mean “fodder”. This genus is part of the subfamily Pooideae of the family Poaceae.
Bluegrass is a type of grass that is commonly found in the eastern United States. It has many desirable properties, such as being drought tolerant and requiring little maintenance.
Bluegrass is also an excellent choice for lawns because it forms a dense turf that crowds out weeds and helps to prevent erosion.
And, of course, its attractive blue-green color makes it a popular choice for landscaping projects.
