Saltwater paspalum Paspalum vaginatum is an exotic perennial grass that forms dense mats along the margins of tidal flats or on sandy or gravel beaches.
It has value as a turf grass, for example, on golf courses, but poses a risk to estuaries by invading and changing the composition and structure of ecosystems.
