Lawns/low native grass

Question
Is there a North/Central Florida native grass that stays low so I don't have to mow it. I want to get rid of all my Bahia grass that shoots up every year and I'd like to have native plants. Or maybe there is a groundcover?

Answer
If you do not like mowing, then you should seriously consider a ground cover.
Contact the Extension Service of the county in which you live in order to select the ground cover that will closest meet your specifications.
Locations.
Hope that this helps.
