Syn. Milium compressum

Common name: Zimbabwe grass, Broadleaf carpet grass

Native to: Southern Africa

 

Zimbabwe grass is lime green in color. It forms thick stolons that creep on the surface and these grow rapidly. The leaves are wide and the size is similar to those of Paspallum. However, unlike Paspalum, Zimbabwe grass leaves are softer and less sharp.

 

Used commonly in low-maintenance lawns. The biggest advantage of this grass type is that it is shade-tolerant and is therefore a uselful species to plant in areas that don't get much sun, such as trees that provide dense shade.
