Description:
Zoysia tenuifolia is a distinctive and visually captivating ground cover option. This warm-season grass is characterized by its fine texture and dense, tufted growth habit, giving it a unique velvety appearance. The narrow, wiry leaves of Zoysia tenuifolia form a lush and low-growing carpet-like mat, reaching heights of 5 to 15cm. For full coverage we recommend spacing 10-20cm apart. Full sun to part shade. Tolerates drought, humidity and light frost once established. Needs a warm position in free draining soil. Grows to 10cm H x 40cm W.
