Cheap & Green

First sold in 1983, Winter Green Couch is quick-growing and keeps its dark green olive colour throughout the colder months. This turf is often called “an oldie but a goodie" and is used for a variety of purposes even today. Growing well in sub-tropical and warm temperate zones, Winter Green Couch is ‘cheap and green'. As it has some frost sensitivity, this turf is best laid in full sun with 6 hours sunlight each day. However, Winter Green Couch has only low tolerance to saline soils. Finally, this variety is good wearing and is suitable for local sporting grounds.
