Sapphire buffalo grass has all the benefits of the other high performance soft leaf buffalo grass, such as: needing less water, deep roots, greener in Winter, good for sun or shade and it's hard wearing. However, Sapphire buffalo grass has the added benefit of a finer texture.
|Winter Colour||Excellent Winter colour in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne (Provided it is fertilised in April). It will go dormant in colder areas such as Canberra, but it will hold its Winter colour better in Winter.|

|Cold Tolerance||Tested down to minus 10 ºC in Canberra.|

|Salt Tolerance||Good. Similar to other Buffalos.|
|Mowing Height||35mm - 45mm in full sun, and 50mm to 60mm in the shade.|
|Recovery From Injury||Excellent, as it has fast growing stolons.|
|Use||Residential and commercial lawns, parks etc.|
|Root Structure||Deep rooted.|
|Drought Tolerance||Excellent once established, due to its deep root system.|
|Texture||Fine compared to other good buffalo grass varieties. Soft to touch.|
Sun and Shade
Like most buffalos, Sapphire is the answer for those maturing landscapes that have both shady and sunny areas. Watered and fertilized twice a year. Sapphire is excellent at out competing weeds once established.
