** WE DO NOT ENDORSE THIS GRASS **
Amerishade St. Augustine is the most shade tolerant St. Augustine grass available. It has a semi-dwarf growth habit with smaller blades and shorter internodes. It also has a rapid rate of spread with less vertical growth than other St. Augustines, producing approximately 50% less clippings. Amerishade is a dark green grass with a medium to fine texture.
It's not as drought tolerant and bug-resistant as some St. Augustine varieties. Bear in mind that there are no effective herbicides that can kill the grass-type weeds that might spring up from AmeriShade (without killing the grass itself).
