Palmetto® Buffalo Turf

Stenotaphrum secundatum ‘SS100′ PBR (SS100):

Palmetto Buffalo grass is one of the most popular selling lawns, due to its impressive drought tolerance and great winter colour. It has an outstanding emerald green colour that is a true eye catcher.

Palmetto grass is a cold hardy Buffalo lawn, which is frost tolerant and holds winter colour longer than all other warm season turf varieties, including Kikuyu, and other buffalo varieties. It will remain evergreen in most areas of Australia.

Palmetto Buffalo has a deep & fast establishing root system; as a result Palmetto grass can handle those harsh drought periods that Australia is known for. Palmetto’s drought tolerance means it requires less watering compared to other varieties in its class.

No more mowing every weekend! Palmetto Buffalo grass is low maintenance and requires 11.2% less mowing than other buffalo’s. So you don’t need to spend your weekend behind a lawn mower.

Another great feature of the Palmetto is it’s non-invasive. This means it won’t get under garden edging & invade your garden beds like other grasses tend to do.
