KURAPIA is a newly developed highly versatile groundcover. Once established it requires little
maintenance and needs less water than even California's cool season turfgrasses. KURAPIA's sturdy
structure makes it ideal for many uses. KURAPIA works well to cover highway and freeway shoulders,
rooftops, public utility areas, commercial properties and solar farm landscapes.
KURAPIA can tolerate
light foot traffic but is not recommended for heavy foot traffic areas like playgrounds or sports fields.
KURAPIA grows close to the ground and rarely exceeds one inch high. Most of the year the plant is
covered in small white flowers that are sterile which means it is unable to reproduce itself by seed.
KURAPIA was bred from the California native plant lippia nodiflora found in the coastal regions of California and Japan. KURAPIA is highly tolerant of extremely acidic and basic soils. KURAPIA has already revolutionized
landscape management in Japan and is set to provide solutions for landscape management and
engineering around the world.
