Paspalum is a perennial turfgrass native to tropical and coastal areas, itís highly tolerant of the environmental stresses in those climates.
Paspalum can provide high-quality turf in reduced-light and waterlogged conditions, as well as in soils with wide pH levels. It also requires a lesser amount of nitrogen fertilizer to keep it healthy. Paspalumís most powerful attribute is its ability to tolerate elevated salinity levels that would affect other turfgrass types much more negatively.
Fertilizer requirements of paspalum are less than those for bermuda grass.
