    pro mow,that's not it, in Texas it would be,

    Floratine;Released 1959. Darker color, finer texture, tolerated lower temperatures and lower mowing!

    Texas Common; May be the original St. Augustine. It has fallen out of favor due to its susceptibility to the incurable St. Augustine Decline (SAD) virus

    NOT,Palmetto,Raleigh,Seville,Floratam,Palm Beach!!

    the stem is too dark purple!!!!! and the blades are to thin!!
