Raleigh St. Augustine
Our most popular St. Augustine
Raleigh St. Augustine was discovered in a home lawn in Raleigh, NC and released by North Carolina State University in 1980. This proven variety for 30+ years is SAD (St. Augustine Decline) resistant. It has a medium green color with a coarse texture. Raleigh adapts well to heavier, organic, clay soils with medium to low soil pH.
Raleigh thrives in moist, humid climates with mild winters and, as a result, is a popular grass for Gulf Coast areas. It has excellent salt tolerance, making it perfect for seaside lawns. This grass performs in sun or shade with at least 4 hours of sun daily. Raleigh recovers relatively quickly from moderate traffic.
