Captiva St. Augustine is the first St. Augustine grass since Floratam to resist all chinch bugs found in the state of Florida. With a deep, dark green color, Captiva has exceptional beauty, a slow rate of vertical growth which means less mowing for the end-user. Captiva was shorter at 21 days of growth than Floratam was at 7 days. Captiva’s dense canopy and deep root system make it a hardy turf grass that will be a viable performer in the landscape for many years to come.
Captiva is an excellent choice for commercial applications because of its rapid recovery, drought tolerance, and dark green color. Captiva is the most shade tolerant bermuda available on the market and can thrive in a variety of applications and climatic conditions.
