St. Augustine grass
Coarse-textured grass from tropical and subtropical regions. Spreads fast by surface runners that root at joints. Dark green leaves to 3/8 in. wide on coarse, wiry, flattened stems. Turns brown during short winter dormancy. Can creep into planting beds. Produces thick thatch, must be cut with a power mower. On the plus side, it takes much traffic, has few pest problems, is fairly tolerant of salt and shade, and is easily removed from plantings (roots are shallow).
