Seville is a semi-dwarf St. Augustine with a compact low growth habit. Seville is probably one of the most shade tolerant amongst all St Augustine grasses. Exhibiting dark green color, Seville does well in the full sun as well as in moderate shade with 6-7 hours of sunlight throughout the day. Council Growers recommends mowing Seville at 2-2.5 inches in height. While Seville, like most St. Augustine varieties, can be susceptible to chinch bugs, gray leaf spot and other turf diseases, this is still a great grass for the Tampa Bay and Sarasota areas.
