Sapphire Buffalo was bred in Australia from the older Australian variety of Sir Walter. Sapphire Soft Leaf Buffalo turf has a super fine soft leaf meaning it is softer to walk on. It holds its deep green colour well into winter (provided it is fertilised in April) but also thrives in hot, humid weather. Recently, Sapphire was found to be the number one soft leaf buffalo grass in the shade. It has excellent drought tolerance once it is established due to its deep root system. It generally grows upwards faster than Palmetto, making it a better choice for high traffic areas and Palmetto better for less maintenance.
