Regal StayGreen is a turf type kikuyu that has a darker green colour and finer leaf texture than vegetative kikuyu. Regal StayGreen is more cold tolerant than other warm season grasses and retains its green colour better. It also withstands heat and drought well and is not susceptible to many of the common turf pests or diseases. It has good tolerance of wear and quickly recovers from injury. Its fine dense habit means it provides an excellent lie for golf course fairways and a tight, dense turf for sports fields.
