Floratam™ is a popular choice for homes in Florida for its light requirements and love of warmer climates, not to mention its attractiveness in the landscape.
A popular choice in Florida, Floratam™ blankets many of the state’s home lawns. Floratam™ is a coarse, vigorous variety of St. Augustine grass that thrives in warmer climates, requiring more than 6 hours of daily sunlight. Perfect for a sunny lawn, Floratam™ is also the most drought tolerant St. Augustine variety on the market.
Floratam™ is not as cold tolerant as other St. Augustine grasses, so preconditioning with a winterizer fertilizer could increase this grass’s beauty during the spring and summer months. Although this is a courser variety, when mowed as a lawn the coarseness is reduced. With a moderate tolerance to wear, Floratam™ is the perfect choice for your home lawn, especially if you are positioned in a warm climate with lots of sunshine. If this sounds like your home, you will be impressed with this variety’s color, uniformity and overall attractive appearance.
