WINTER DORMANT VARIETIES
GOES DORMANT UNTIL WEATHER WARMS
St. Augustine | Very coarse thick stemmed runners. Used primarily where shade tolerance is the top priority. Native to the southern United States where humid conditions do not permit cool-season lawn varieties to flourish. Considerable thatching. Requires concrete borders for containment. Dormant in winter.
Tifgreen | Hybrid bermuda. Excellent as athletic field or recreational turf. Often used on golf course putting greens. Very dense, low-growing, fine textured. With consistent care and trimming will create an attractive "manicured" look. Develops thatch. Requires concrete boarders for containment. Becomes dormant in winter.
Zoysia Tenuifolia | An ornamental grass with a unique, rolling appearance typically used in oriental garden settings or as a ground cover. Usually left unmowed for a freeform, natural look. Extremely slow growing, and fine textured. Dormant in winter.
