Sapphire® Soft Leaf Buffalo delivers solid performance with the added benefit of fine texture. It’s folding leaf creates a lawn that is unbeatably soft.
Due to its high performance and fast runner growth, Sapphire® is hard-wearing with a quick recovery rate making it an ideal choice for active families and households with large dogs.

Sapphire® is recognised for its very high shade tolerance and is ideal for those wanting a low maintenance lawn that requires less mowing.
Because of its deep root system, Sapphire® has excellent cold tolerance – it has a brilliant winter colour in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide. Even in colder climates like Canberra, Sapphire® will hold its winter colour longer than most varieties.

With its deep root system, Sapphire® is an efficient water user and drought tolerant.
