Turf Varieties

Selected species: Lax panicgrass

There is a lawn variety of Panicum laxum which thrives under low-light conditions in the sub-tropics. It is difficult to produce commercially viable seed of the variety and thus is often in very short to no supply. The variety can produce a dense cover of dark green foliage, which requires litte mowing. It mixes well with Broadleaf carpet grass.

Mowing height is 30 mm to 50 mm.
