The Q&A Archives: ID the Grass

Question: Is there a difference in St. Augustine and Floratam as far as products to use? How can you tell one grass from the other?

Answer: Floratam is a hybrid St. Augustine and is more disease resistant than standard St. Augustine. The appearance is similar but the roots and stems of Floratam are sturdier and more able to take stresses from drought and attacks from cinch bugs and grubs. You can use the same products on Floratam as you do on St. Augustine.
