Prestige® is reported as having 20% faster lateral growth compared to Palmetto buffalo. Comments have been made that Prestige buffalo provides a darker green colour for most of the year. During testing within the Plant Breeder's Rights trial, leaf colour was the same as Palmetto (Abell, 2013).
Prestige (PAL42) was bred by Ozbreed. Abell (2013) identifed that the mean leaf blade of Prestige (40 mm) is shorter than the buffalograss Palmetto ('SS100') (29 mm).
