Wintergreen was selected for its vigorous growth, dark green olive colour and colour retention compared to other Cynodon dactylon (green couch) varieties in Australia at the time. Following 10 years of experimenting under test and development, Wintergreen was released in 1983. The variety which is commonly described "as an oldie but a goodie" is still widely used today within sub-tropical and warm temperate zones within Australia

Other comments
One of the two Australian industry standard cultivars widely sold as a 'cheap and green' commodity. Uncontrolled commercial multiplication for more than 20 years has resulted in wide genetic variation within and between commercial sources of Wintergreen. Wintergreen can be mown down to 6 mm with a cylinder mower; it has some frost sensitivity. Stops growing below 6-7° C. Good winter colour retention. As for most other green couches. Best in full sun. Requires a minimum of six hours of sunlight per day. Recovers rapidly after drought. Low-moderate salinity tolerance. Moderate to good wear and is commonly used on community sports fields.
