The Original Sun and Shade Grass

Make sure you're getting the real thing! Look for the Palmetto flag in your pallet. Don't buy into the "shade" grass claims from imitators, there's only one Palmetto® St. Augustine and it has been around and fighting limited light landscapes for years.

Palmetto is the most sold patented turfgrass in the world with more than one billion square feet sold. Selected for better color and finer texture. Palmetto demonstrates superior shade, cold, frost, heat and drought tolerance.
