Linday’s Poa (Poa lindsayi) grows as a small, delicate grey-green or blue-green, rarely reddish perennial tuft, 5-40cm. It has densely packed wiry, short and curved, or longer and erect leaves. The Leaf-sheath is very pale brown, often purplish, membranous, distinctly ribbed, minutely scabrid abaxially, occasionally smooth.
As Lindsay’s Poa is common, there are no specific conservation activities, however controlling invasive weed species is beneficial for all endemic plants.
