In Victoria, Santa Ana represents the Nullarbor Couch variety that is best suited to your region and is the perfect choice in couch grass.
Fine Leaf Couch Grass Blend
Nullarbor Couch (Santa Ana) is a hybrid fine leaf couch grass suitable for all domestic applications in full sun.
Nullarbor Couch ( Santa Ana) is the finest of the couches and does require more care and dethatching than the other varieties.
Recommended for a fine close mown lawn.
Warm Season Grass
Nullarbor Couch (Santa Ana) is a warm season grass and as such will go dormant and loose colour over Winter in colder climates.
Normally we can expect to see the discolouration from June to September but this will depend on the seasons and how cold the weather is.
If you are in a frosts prone area for example you will experience a longer dormancy period than a beachside suburb.
Low Water Usage and Wear Tolerant
The upside to these warm season grasses is that they are very hard wearing and do like the heat and will use 2- 3 times less water during peak heat periods than Cool Season grasses.
