A hot new addition to Olympic Park is the hugely popular Muhly Grass field where the feathery flowers turn pastel pink in Autumn.

 

The Kochia Scoparia starts from lime green to yellow colours generally in late September to early October before turning bright red. It generally loses its bright red to dry brown colour earlier than Pink Muhly.
