St Aug seed head

It seems about this time of year St Aug develops what I assume to be it's seed head. Just wondering if this takes away from the appearance of it since it may be putting it's energy into seed production. Sometimes it looks a little stressed at this point but maybe it's just the heat/drought conditions this time of year.

I think it is just wired into the St Augustine to do this now. Especially if the grass is stressed. I see a little of this in my lawns, but it is far worse in the underfertilized and improperly watered lawns. It is even worse on the ones that are scalped.
