(Cynondon Dactylon X C. Transvaalensis)

Santa Ana is a hybrid couch cultivar and has a finer leaf and therefore a softer feel than Wintergreen. This lawn produces one of the nicer lawns of all the couches if properly maintained. Santa Ana is best to be mowed with a cylinder mower. It is a darker/richer green than the other couches. Cabarlah Park Turf have used Santa Ana successfully on sporting ovals, home lawns, golf tees and cricket wickets.
