|Medium textured, green to dark green, cool season, perennial turf grass capable of surviving extended drought periods. Summer dormancy may occur, re-growth occurs several weeks after termination of drought. Good low temperature hardiness. Soil should be well drained with an optimum pH of 6 to 7. Susceptible to fungus and disease during hot, humid weather. Establish by seed during its growing season (cooler months). May be sodded anytime. Mow to 2 inches in spring and fall, and 3 inches in summer. The higher mowing height during summer helps the grass deal with heat stress.
