Whittet Kikuyu Grass Seed

Stover Seed Company

Product default

Kikuyugrass is a vigorous, warm season grass that spreads by rhizomes and runners. It is native to tropical Africa and was first introduced in California in the 1930’s as an erosion control grass for ditchbanks and slopes. It has spread throughout Southern California and is most prevalent in coastal areas. The appearance is similar to St Augustine grass with a coarse blade texture but is more agressive with fleshy runners. The variety ‘Whittet’ is an improvement over common with taller or more erect growth with broader leaves and thicker stems.
