Warm-season grass with a dense, medium to dark green turf and produces an attractive lawn with a medium to coarse textured grass blade requiring very low maintenance.
Good general purpose grass for lawns and is best adapted to hot, humid and tropical climates. This type of turf grows well where rainfall is high and summers are warm and humid and is very popular because of its low maintenance.
Grows well when in full sun and is very tolerant to heat tolerance up to 100° F but is sensitive to low temperatures, going dormant through winter months at temperatures below 55° F and does not tolerate long periods of cold well.
Moderate. This type of turf is sensitive to drought, but does have a rapid recovery rate. Can go into summer dormancy when irrigation is withheld and then upon the return of moisture, will green up again.
Good. Some varieties maintain adequate turf quality in 60% shade and is tolerant of pine tree shade.
Poor. This type of turf has a slow growth pattern and will not withstand heavy wear and recovers slowly from injury.
