Why Kurapia

Kurapia is a highly versatile (drought tolerant) groundcover that replaces traditional lawns, groundcovers, and erosion control plants. It establishes fast, is easy to control, and can be (mowed) into a low cushionly turf or left to (bloom into a lush groundcover). Adaptable to many landscaping situations, including extreme weather, heavy slopes, irregular watering, irregular pH, salinity, and foot traffic. Kurapia’s low maintenance and water requirements saves you money while behaving reliably year after year.
