Lawn Grass Seed

Carpet Grass Seed (Coated)


Scientific Name : Axonopus

Carpetgrass (Axonopus affinis) is a creeping, stoloniferous, perennial warm season grass. It is characterized by flat, two-edged runners or stolons; by wide leaves with blunt, rounded tips and by long, slender seed stalks that terminate with two branches, very similar to crabgrass. Stolons are flat, widely branched and root at each node.

From the sandy soils of East Texas to Florida and north to Virginia, Alabama and Arkansas, carpetgrass is found in fields, woods, along roadsides, pastures and lawns.

Also known as flatgrass, Louisianagrass and as "petit gazon" by the Creoles of Louisiana, carpetgrass is native to the Gulf Coast states and other tropical climates. It is a creeping, perennial grass that can be recognized by the blunt rounded tips of its leaves, flat stolons and a tall seed stalk with two branches at the apex. It forms a dense mat and will crowd out most other species.

    Arrived Fast - Well Packed

    This is my first time ordering from Seed World but so far so good. They arrived fast and I really liked that they arrived in paper bag, not a plastic bag. One of the other vendors I used in the past ships in plastic bags and when you open them they leave little plastic pieces all throughout your seed...not a good way to start a yard. I mixed the Carpetgrass seeds with Bermuda, Zoysia, and Brown Millet (Carpetgrass for the deep shaded areas, Zoysia for the less shaded areas, Bermuda for the full sun locations, and Brown Millet for the cover crop), looking forward to seeing it all grow up this summer.

    I got the shipment

    I haven’t planted it yet. I was going to mix it with miloranite and your shipping was so fast I didn’t get the milorganite yet… stay tuned!

    Please confirm what variety of Carpet Grass this is.

    Your description says Axonopus affinis, but the picture, along with what popped up in my yard appears to look more like Axonopus compressus, which while in the same ballpark, are completely different varieties.
