Sure looks different. Sad to see all the plants gone, but less maintenance for us.

Good job of scaling down. I need to do more of that. I see you got to keep the beautiful Canyon Creek abelia.

Yeah, I know but I was just wondering which st augustine. I'm not even allowed to grow st augustine even though floratam cultivar is very drought hardy. Go figure.

I don't think it is Floratam. The man did not say what kind.

Most likely 'Raleigh'. Very commonly used. Not exactly very drought hardy though. It's just the cheapest st aug cultivar out there. Not sure where you live. Maybe this will help you in the future since it sells floratam by pieces.

Here is a link that might be useful: Floratam

Lou,
St. Aug. is also banned in Kyle but the city doesn't enforce the ordinance. There are several homes with it for years. Just saying...
