Bitter Blue / Bermuda
Bitterblue has a finer, denser texture and darker blue-green color than common St. Augustine grass. It has improved cold tolerance and good shade tolerance but is not resistant to chinch bugs or gray leaf spot disease. Its tolerance to atrazine is also lower than other varieties, making weed control more difficult.
Mowing to infrequently and improper watering can cause a thatch buildup. The secret to growing healthy Bitter Blue is to water the lawn only when there are signs of moisture stress. This will keep growth to a minimum and reduce the accumulation of thatch. Mowing too low can also cause problems with turf quality.
Mowed typically at a height of three to four inches, and mowing frequency should be adjusted to the amount of growth, never removing more than one third of the height of the leaf blade while mowing.
