Common buffalograss has been used to identfy a range of "common" or older varieties or genotypes of buffalograss. These include: "Sydney soft leaf buffalo", "Sydney Common", "Common buffalograss".
Buffalograss is now the main grass marketed (into shaded areas) across Australia. It is coarse-textured and needs to be mown higher than green couch varieties (around 35-40 mm) for best results. It has reasonable drought and wear tolerance, but certain varieties show poor tolerance of some of the commonly used herbicides for broadleaf weed control in turf.
Characteristics or performance traits may vary slightly between varieteis, common or older varieties being sold.
