Kentucky Bluegrass Seed - Probably the most outstanding feature of Kentucky Bluegrass is its unusually dark blue-green color, making it the darkest bluegrass available. Its high tiller density provides a thick carpet that will stand up to the abuses of high traffic associated with parks and athletic fields. Sod producers and homeowners enjoy dwarf growth characteristics, which result in fewer mowings and reduced maintenance costs. In recent university trials, this cultivar has shown good resistance to Leaf Spot, Stem Rust, Stripe Smut and Dollar Spot, as well as good heat and drought tolerance.

 

Characteristics:

• A Very Dark Blue-Green Color

• Dwarf Growth Habit

• Strong Overall Disease Resistance

• Very High Tiller Density

• High Drought Tolerance

• Good Tolerance to Close Mowing

 

Recommended Use: Golf Courses (Fairways, Tees and Roughs), Sod Farms, Athletic Fields, Parks and Home Lawns

Establishment & Maintenance: As all bluegrasses, requires 2 - 3 weeks for complete germination. Color may be observed before that time; however in good growing weather where soil temperatures are above 65º F (18º C), expect 8 to 10 weeks for a complete stand of grass.

The first mowing may be expected in about six weeks. Good mowing qualities and can be maintained at a cutting height ranging from 1/2 inch to 2 inches (12 - 50 mm). Does well in sand or heavy clay soils, and like all bluegrasses, performs best in soils with a pH of 5.5 to 8. Three to five pounds per 1,000 square feet per year is adequate in most areas of the United States.

Seeding Rates:

Golf Tees, Home Lawns: 2 - 3 lbs per 1000 sq. ft.
