Bahia Grass

Posted

A hard-wearing, coarse-textured grass with soft leaves. It is used in some low maintenance situations and at airports. The grass is slow to establish from seed but once established, it out-competes other more desirable turf species due to its robust root system and dense mat of stolons and rhizomes. In southern Queensland, bahia grass is the major perennial grass weed species in parks and urban open space areas, where it requires frequent mowing during summer to remove the numerous seed heads up to 60 cm tall. Bahia grass shows poor shade tolerance, and is damaged by a number of herbicides safe to use on other warm-season turf species.

Wild violet is a winter perennial, growing 2 – 5 inches tall. It can have a tap root or a fibrous root system, and also can produce rooting stolons and rhizomes. The leaves can vary but usually are heart shaped, on long petioles with scalloped to shallow rounded margins.

The flowers of wild violet range from white to blue to purple and appear from March to June. Wild violet flowers are pansy-like with three lower petals and two lateral petals on long single flower stalks.

Wild violets are found throughout the United States, except for the Rocky Mountains. Wild violets are more common where they are sold as ornamental ground covers.
