"Sports/Parks // “The two things that impress me the most about Sea Isle Supreme are its drought tolerance and low fertility requirements. Side by side plots with 419 in the field strongly suggest that you can produce superior turf with Sea Isle Supreme using significantly less water and fertilizer inputs.”
Sea Isle Supreme were created, respectively, to take advantage of the unique properties inherent in this tropical and sub-tropical native species. Seashore paspalum is a warm season turf grass that grows naturally in coastal environments, often in brackish marsh water or in close proximity to ocean waters. It also grows in areas that receive extended periods of heavy rains and low light intensity. Its best growth occurs in response to warm temperatures and long day lengths. All of the cultivated species seek to improve upon those natural growing characteristics.
