Similar to the Bermuda grasses in texture and playability, Salam Seashore Paspalum was originally marketed for golf greens and tees, especially in salt-challenged environments. Salam Seashore Paspalum is a warm-season perennial grass that spreads by stolons. The stolons and leaves of Salam Seashore Paspalum are slightly coarser than those of common Bermuda grass. However, when mowed regularly at heights of 1 inch or less, the grass produces a dense turf. One of the outstanding characteristics of Salam Seashore Paspalum is its tolerance to saline soils. It is reported to tolerate brackish sites much better than Bermuda grass. Salam Seashore Paspalum grass thrives in moist sites. It tolerates wet conditions much better than Bermuda grass. Although Salam Seashore Paspalum survives prolonged dry periods, it shows moisture before Bermuda grass. Salam Seashore Paspalum’s drought tolerance is similar to that of Centipede grass.
