Abstract

Spontaneous mutation or chance seedling: discovered in 2001 as a superior plant growing among “Common” green couch on the breeder’s turf farm at Berries Road, Childers. A selected piece of sod was removed and broken into vegetative sprigs to propagate a larger area of this variety elsewhere on the breeder’s property. The original plant has now been multiplied vegetatively three times without showing any discernible off types. Selection criteria: dense prostrate habit and limited inflorescence production (giving a low mowing requirement), high turf quality, dark green colour. Propagation: vegetative. Breeder: Robert William Morrow, Childers, QLD. PBR Certificate Number 2844, Application Number 2004/035, granted 22 August 2005.
