Answer: Sapphire St. Augustine is a relatively new cultivar but an excellent choice for your gardening region. It is an attractive turfgrass with fast prostrate (horizontal) growth, purple stolon color and a long leaf blade that is highly infolded in mature turf, giving the grass a fine leaf appearance. Sapphire has a pleasing blue green color, and has excellent color retention.
Sapphire is hardwearing, tolerates salt, shade, and drought. It performs well with less maintenance, fertilization and water than other St. Augustines, has improved wear recovery and reduced weed problems.
After laying the sod, roll it to be sure it makes good contact with the soil. Water deeply to help it take root. Most of all, enjoy your new turf!
