Hello nature lover.....!

Bitterblue St Augustine Lawn GrassBitter Blue St. Augustine grass plugs are a great choice for shady lawns. Its exceptional dark blue-green tone makes Bitter Blue a beautiful choice for your lawn. Its slow growth rate means you can mow less often and it also has very good cold tolerance compared to other St. Augustine varieties.

Sometimes confused with the Floratam St. Augustine variety, Bitterblue St. Augustine grass differs in appearance from other types of St. Augustine grass, which helps with it's appeal. While many other St. Augustine grass types have a thick, coarse appearance when viewed up close, Bitterblue is a finer, more solid turf.

Bitter Blue has a lower tolerance to the herbicide, Atrazine, which can make weed control harder -- that is if you use chemicals to control weeds. Besides having an enhanced darker bluish-green color and better texture, Bitter Blue grass can tolerate shade better than common St. Augustine grass but not quite as well as Seville St. Augustine grass.

St Augustine Grass Areas Of Adaptation

In the U.S., St. Augustine grass is found from the Carolinas to Florida and westward along the Gulf Coast to Texas and in Southern and Central California. Because of its lack of winter hardiness, St. Augustine grass is restricted to areas with mild winter temperatures. Like bermudagrass, St. Augustine thrives in high temperatures, but the growth of St. Augustine is better than that of bermudagrass in cool, coastal climates.
