Hawaiian Turfgrass recently licensed SeaStar Paspalum, a grass suited for the Hawaiian climate. The grass was developed by the world’s leading seashore paspalum turfgrass breeder, Dr. Paul Raymer, at the University of Georgia. SeaStar can be used for golf courses wall-to-wall.
“Hawaii is one of the most ideal environments that exists for seashore paspalum grasses. It’s the temperature, the humidity, the soil. It’s just happy there,” Raymer stated. “SeaStar, in terms of pure quality, color, density and texture, is better across the board than any other seashore paspalum grass on the market today.”
SeaStar will be available as sod, as well, can be installed by Hawaiian Turfgrass. The grass makes for superior sports fields and beautiful home laws. For golf, SeaStar offers the rare and uique opportunity to use one grass on every playing surface.
“It is truly a grass for golf course applications that can go wall-to-wall. It was developed with wall-to-wall in mind, from roughs and fairways, to tees and greens. It performs very well at all of those wide ranges of mowing heights,” Raymer said.
Other benefits of SeaStar include: a high level of salt tolerance, tested and confirmed short-term drought tolerance, and the ability to be mowed with a reel or rotary mower.
Hawaiian Turfgrass is currently taking reservations for SeaStar golf projects for 2016.
