Hybrid Zoysia Grass Seed
Hybrid Zoysia grass
is the progeny of three parent plants which have yellow-white flowers.
Each parent was selected for superior attributes such as leaf texture,
color, disease resistance, drought tolerance, fall color retention,
uniform color when dormant, and early spring green up.
Hybrid Zoysia Grass
is medium dark green color, a medium density, and will tolerate light
shade. It is planted in late spring to early summer with a seeding rate
of 1 to 2 pounds of seed per 1000 square feet. The seed should be very
lightly covered with soil by raking. Cover the seeded area with straw to
retain soil moisture during the germination period. Water the newly
seeded lawn very lightly three or four times per day to keep the seed
moist for best germination.
The seed will germinate in ten or more
days. Gradually reduce watering frequency, but give the lawn longer
soakings to establish the new grass root system.
In general, the
zoysias are slow to cover completely (thus more costly to establish),
less drought-tolerant than bermudagrass, and recommended for lawn use
only when the homeowner is willing to provide the required maintenance.
