Is Zoysia the Most Green Grass in Florida?

JaMur Zoysia grass is gaining popularity as a home lawn grass. It has some cool characteristics that have been driving interest in the cultivar, especially as the "Green" movement picks up steam and as drought conditions continue in the Tampa Bay area. The most significant of these characteristics is the turf's drought tolerance. In fact, the turf earned an acknowledgement from the Florida Green Building Coalition for displaying exceptional drought tolerance. If you are working towards a "Green Home Certification", the selection of JaMur Zoysia will now earn you certifying credits (Category Two: Water/Drought Tolerant Turf [2 points]).

Pictured above is JaMur Zoysia grass taken in late Feb. 2010 in Tampa, FL. The purple structures in the picture are actually the plant's inflorescence. Additional information about JaMur Zoysia and its designation by the Florida Green Building Coalition can be found here.
