Texas Native St. Augustine grass is widely known by farms that continued to grow the variety, even as marketing programs have introduced various other varieties, as a “hidden gem”. It’s hardiness and cold / shade tolerance have made it an easy sell at the beginning of the spring season when other types of St. Augustine grasses are still in various stages of dormancy. It’s natural high tolerance to fungus keeps it hearty against common ailments in fall and winter seasons such as “brown patch” and “Grey leaf spot”. Being a variety found growing naturally in areas of shade, such as large mots of oaks or various other trees, its ability to handle many of the common issues faced throughout the state is second to none. Texas Native is a well-rounded, drought, cold and shade tolerant grass that we are happy to offer when it’s available.
