'Captiva' was released by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station in 2007. It has dark green, short, narrow leaf blades and reduced vertical leaf extension, making it a slower-growing cultivar. It exhibits improved tolerance to chinch bugs than other commercially available cultivars. It is somewhat susceptible to diseases such as large (brown) patch, particularly if it receives excess fertilizer or irrigation. Captiva is an excellent choice for homeowners that want a finer texture St. Augustine yard.
