Is Saint Augustine grass named after Saint Augustine of Hippo or the city of Saint Augustine Florida?
Augustine is a 'precongregational' saint. He was declared a saint by the early Church before the canonization process was fully instituted in the 12th century. Back then, any bishop could declare a saint. Today only a pope can do that and only after years of investigation by the Sacred Congregation for the causes of Saints.
