Palmetto (St. Augustine grass) was a selection found by a Florida sod grower in 1988 and released in the mid-1990s by Sod Solutions. It is sometimes referred to as a “semidwarf cultivar” with a shorter growth habit and internodes than many other cultivars, but it is slightly larger than the dwarf St. Augustine grass cultivars. It does well in full sun or partial shade, but not in dense shade. It is sometimes referred to as drought tolerant, but research has not shown that it has any greater degree of drought tolerance than other St. Augustine grasses. It is not resistant to insects and sometimes has problems with disease, particularly in Florida’s humid environment. It tends to have a lighter green color than many other cultivars. It should be mowed to a height of 3–4 inches.
