Centipede grass

Scientific name Eremochloa ophiuroides
Characteristics A bright green, coarse-textured grass that forms a dense stolon mat and requires much less frequent mowing than the other grasses already discussed. It is a ´low maintenance´ grass that tolerates acid soils and low fertility, but not shade. Its greatest disadvantage in southern Queensland is its strong dormancy during winter (at which time it virtually ceases growing and turns brown).
