About Paspalum

Paspalum, a perennial grass spread through stolons, stands out for its adaptability, thriving in wet conditions, and drought. Renowned for its excellent wear tolerance and rapid recovery, it offers optimal playability for golf courses and sports venues when maintained at a low mow height to create a dense turf. Additionally, it exhibits good tolerance to salty water, boasting a soft texture that invites barefoot exploration. Platinum, a variety of paspalum, demonstrates slightly better shade tolerance compared to Salam Seashore.
