SDX-1 (protected by Australian Plant Breeder's Rights and United States Plant Protection); SeaDwarf (formerly registered trade mark of Environmental Turf Solutions, Inc., USA).
SeaDwarf is a medium- to fine-textured seashore paspalum that was selected on the basis of its dwarf growth habit, tolerance of low cutting height, turf density, fine-textured growth, and apparent salt tolerance under field conditions (Roche and Loch, 2008). SeaDwarf has been used on golf courses in the USA wall-to-wall i.e. from tees to greens.
SeaDwarf Seashore Paspalum is the only dwarf cultivar of Seashore Paspalum. It tolerates a wide range of mowing heights, about 2.5mm to abot 50mm, but can be left unkept to about 100mm. Seashore paspalum can be irrigated with varied water quality; alternative water sources such as effluent, reclaimed or brackish may be used as an irrigation source. SeaDwarf is available through Environmental Turf and its network of Licensed Growers (Soruce: Environmental Turf Solutions, Inc.).
