Bluegrass

Poa pratensis L.

Kentucky bluegrass is frequently found in the wild, on mineral and humus-rich soils in both the northern and southern hemispheres. Fine-leaved varieties with excellent turf qualities have been selected. Kentucky bluegrass is a persistent species with strong rhizomes and erect leafy shoots. Growth starts early in the spring, and regrowth consists mainly of leafy material that can be mown easily, leaving a clean cut. Kentucky bluegrass tolerates hard wear and can regenerate itself even if the sward is badly damaged. Newer varieties tend to have a higher density than the old. The heat tolerance of Poa pratensis is good, which makes it a perfect partner in mixtures with tall fescue.

Establishment: 14 to 21 Days
Use alone or with ryegrass, tall or fine fescue for year-round quality and sod strength.
