Seashore Paspalum is a halophytic plant

Halophytes are plants that are capable of flourishing under conditions of high salinity. Until now these halophytes have not been considered worthy of landscape use. Research performed at the University of Georgia, Texas A&M University, and by BFI have produced astonishing results. Not only are these grasses worthy of landscape use, but BFI has  specific varieties of seashore paspalum and seashore dropseed that have been developed that can be mowed to 1/8th-of-an-inch, withstand brackish and sea water irrigation, and maintain the fine texture and color that are typical of many championship golf courses around the world.
