Sweet Smother Turf

Sweet Smother

Dactyloctenium australe

Sweet Smother , sometimes known as Durban, is an excellent choice for projects where shading is the predominant consideration. It is the most shade tolerant of all turf varieties sold in South East Queensland. Sweet Smother performs best with a minimum of one to two hours of direct sunlight per day and will require longer exposure if sunlight is filtered. This variety has a very soft, medium textured leaf and will withstand average wear. Sweet Smother will provide an attractive lawn in either full sun or semi-shaded areas and grows best on well-drained areas.


  • Most shade tolerant variety on the market
  • Soft in texture with a broad leaf
