This fine leafed couch grass is a warm season grass which thrives on sun and heat. A Nullarbor Santa Ana lawn is tough and durable and looks best when mowed short, 10-20mm. Excellent for high wear play areas as it will tolerate considerable traffic, but is typically intolerant of heavy shade, preferring 6-7 hours of sun per day. Perfect for north facing situations. Nullarbor-Santa Ana Couch has a short dormancy period of approximately eight weeks over winter in Southern Victoria (depending upon frost frequency). Hardwearing in nature, Santa Ana is less invasive than other creeping grasses. Santa Ana can be cut extremely short and can be used as a home golf green.
