There are many shade tolerant types of St. Augustine and all are considered “dwarf” varieties because of their growth habits. Shade varieties tend to grow at a slower rate than regular St. Augustine or Floratam and have a short, tight, growth pattern and a finer blade. Each type of shade tolerant St. Augustine is relatively the same as far as appearance and growth habits and preference is a major factor in choosing a variety. We carry a broad selection of shade tolerant St. Augustine grasses including; Palmetto, Classic, Seville, Bitter Blue, and Sapphire, each having excellent shade tolerance as well as a more refined look. Regardless of the variety, Shade tolerant St. Augustine grasses make for lush, beautiful lawns, and give you the versatility you need.
