Some advantages to this new cross are as follows according to Tony Koski, CSU Turf Specialist:
- the grass remains vigorous in growth with the warmth and heat of summer
- better traffic tolerance because it maintains good growth during the heat of summer
- deep, extensive root system which helps with drought resistance and recovery from foot traffic
- extensive and rhizomatic system which allows this grass to be a better choice for traction in sports and to be mowed at a lower height than Kentucky Bluegrass in summer weather.
- less irrigation required
Named varieties of the Hybrid Grass are as follows:
Spitfire (Seed Research of Oregon)
Reveille (Gardner Turfgrass)
Longhorn (Scotts Turf-Seed)
This Hybrid Grass will do well up to 9000 feet in altitude.
