Green couch

Scientific name Cynodon dactylon
Characteristics Most popular choice for Queensland homeowners and sports fields. It forms an attractive, dense, medium- to fine-textured turf that can be mown short (around 15-30 mm), but requires fertiliser and regular mowing to keep it looking good. Has excellent drought and wear tolerance, but does not tolerate shade (except for a few varieties with moderate shade tolerance). Its below-ground rhizomes help to stabilise the soil, but will also invade adjacent garden beds if not controlled.
