St. Augustine Variety

St. Augustine is a coarse grass that functions best as a lawn grass.  It is the most shade-tolerant of warm-season grasses but lacks the cold hardiness of zoysia, bermuda, and buffalo grasses.  It is also less drought-tolerant than zoysia, bermuda, and buffalo grasses, and, therefore, requires more supplemental irrigation.  St. Augustine is best established through sod.


Raleigh – St. Augustine Decline resistant, requires 5 hours of sun, is more drought-tolerant than Zorro or Emerald, and is easy to establish from sod.  Sprigs will take 1 year to establish from planting.

Del Mar – More shade-tolerant than Raleigh.  More drought-tolerant than Zorro or Emerald.  Requires 4 hours of sun.  Easy to establish from sod.  Sprigs will take 1 year to establish from planting.

Floratam – More drought-tolerant than Raleigh or Del Mar.
