Floratam Grass is a variety of St. Augustine and was released by the University of Florida and Texas A&M University in 1973 for its resistance to the chinch bug and St. Augustine Decline (SAD) disease.
Floratam is such a thriving grass and has aggressive stolons (aboveground runners) that can grow laterally at 3/4 inch per day!
In the realm of Florida sods, Floratam St. Augustine is king. Floratam St. Augustine grass is a coarse, fast spreading variety of turf that is the most adaptable to Florida soil. It is best suited in full sun areas. Its thick growing nature keeps weeds in check with proper maintenance.
