    Do not use on St. Aug. or it will burn it. The Southern is the replacement for the St. Augustine formula. The St. Augustine formula label said not to apply when temps. exceeded 90. Several companies in our area were getting severe damage between 88 & 90. The pulled the product, relabeled it Southern, pulled Floratam off the label, lowered the temp. rating to 85 degrees or cooler, and put the product back out.
    I personally will not use it above 85 degrees anymore.
