Eremochloa ophiuroides

Centipedegrass is a warm-season turf grass that grows slowly and has a medium to coarse texture, making it a favorite in southern coastal regions.

Care

Centipedegrass naturally has a light, pale-green color, so for homeowners who desire a dark green lawn, this might not be the best choice. This turf grass is susceptible to various lawn diseases and insects. Centipedegrass is also especially susceptible to winter injury from cold temperatures, sometimes making proper turf grass management programs more intensive.
