Nara Native Turf Articles | Super Drought Tolerant Australian Native Turf

For anyone needing an extremely drought tolerant native turf.

In drought studies, Zoysia macrantha was found to be more drought tolerant than Buffalo and Couch turf. With

Nara Native Turf being the first and only commercial Zoysia macrantha, this is great news for anyone needing an extremely

drought tolerant native turf.

Broad leaf Carpet Grass and Sweet Smother Grass were relatively drought sensitive and Marine Couch, Sporobolous

virginicus, Sand Couch and Zoysia macrantha were relatively drought tolerant. The Bermuda (Couch), Queensland

Blue Couch and Buffalo grasses had intermediate drought tolerance.
