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 cushiony turf or left to bloom into a lush groundcover. Kurapia's low water and low maintenance requirements allows for light foot-traffic, great aesthetics, and even greater versatility.
