Abstract/Contents:This study was designed to identify the relative shade tolerance of commercial and elite experimental varieties of St. Augustinegrass. Acceptable turf canopy density was observed for six experimental lines, including Dallas developed DALSA8402, but none of the commercial lines produced acceptable canopy density during the summer growing season. Foliar color quality improved during the growing season for four commercial varieties and seven experimental lines. Generally, St. Augustinegrasses spread quickly and extensively. At the end of the experiment, eight of the 27 St. Augustinegrasses had stolons at least 30 cm long, of which "Sunclipse" had the longest stolons. Five of these eight were commercial lines and three were experimental lines, which of the latter included S71770, TR610, and MSA11. The poorest development was observed for FX33, FX10, and the commercially available "Bitterblue".
