Long been the standard “carpetgrass” in Texas, Raleigh St. Augustine is medium to dark green with a medium to coarse blade. Developed by the North Carolina Experiment Station in 1980, this variety of St. Augustine exhibits dense ground coverage. Being of the moderately shade tolerant St. Augustine family, it falls somewhere in the spectrum; between it’s more tolerant cousins, Palmetto and Texas Native and it’s somewhat less tolerant kin, Floratam.
Palmetto St. Augustine is widely known for it’s superior cold & drought tolerance. With a finer texture than other St. Augustine types, Palmetto St. Augustine will grow in a variety of soil types and climate conditions.

Exhibiting both drought and heat tolerance, it is most commonly known as the most cold and shade tolerant of the St. Augustine grasses.
Floratam is a coarse textured St. Augustine grass variety. Stolons of Floratam are large and purplish-red in color. Leaf blades are wider and longer than the other St. Augustine grass varieties.

However, Floratam is not as cold tolerant as some of the other varieties of St. Augustines. Floratam may suffer freeze damage when temperatures fall below freezing for extended periods.
