Our main variety grown is Wintergreen, a cultivar of common couch.

WINTERGREEN is one of the successful Australian selections of common (or green) couch. This cultivar was identified in Sydney as possessing improved low temperature tolerance and colour retention. Unlike many other named turfgrass varieties, WINTERGREEN is not subject to Plant Breeder’s Rights (PBR) and therefore is not subject to licensing or royalty payments. WINTERGREEN turf tends to be cheaper than similar green couch cultivars for this reason, even though similar performance can be expected.
