Origin

SeaIsle 2000 Paspalum vaginatum is the improved variation of Paspalum vaginatum, which offers a considerable resistance to the principle conditions of stress, especially in environmental atmospheres of extreme salinity.

Growth

It has a very aggressive growth by means of rhizomes and stolons by which it competes advantageously against weeds. It forms an extraordinary dense and compact grass. Its stolons are more robust and its internode is shorter than the Bermudagrass.
