With a massive root system, Santee Centipede is one tough grass. That root system allows Santee to recover from damage quickly by rapidly covering the ground. The roots also allow for better uptake of water and nutrients from the soil, making Santee a very drought tolerant grass. Santee also features good fall color retention and spring green-up. Common centipede is a relic of the past. Santee is an improved more robust Centipede.
