Warning

All our warm season grasses are drought resistant and by their very nature are capable of surviving, where other grasses do not. This feature makes them intrusive species. Ample protection must be in place for flower borders and other areas that these grasses will inevitably invade. In more Northern or wetter climates, or where grown where invasion into finer manicured lawns, these grasses would be considered as an undesirable invader or indeed a weed. However it is exactly these characteristics that make our grasses desirable for low watering and low maintenance lawns. Indeed, irrigation, over watering or overfeeding can render these grasses a real problem.
