Harmonie is a new and improved moderately dark green Kentucky Bluegrass with good resistance to leaf spot and stripe smut. It is a cold tolerant, persistent, attractive grass that, through the development of an extensive rhizome system, forms a well-knit, durable sod. It is adapted to a wide range of soils and climatic conditions. Harmonie is widely adapted throughout the cool humid regions of North America. Its wear resistance and slow vertical growth makes it suitable for parks, playgrounds, home lawns, and highway roadsides as a versatile Kentucky bluegrass.
Midnight Kentucky Bluegrass is more than capable and this elite variety is ready to show its colors. Midnight is a very dark green and it forms a dense and durable sod. It resists disease and won't take over your mixed species lawn. It has a very fine leaf texture and grows lower and slower than most Bluegrasses. You'll enjoy the benefits of this outstanding grass seed for many years to come.
Appalachian is a new and improved Kentucky bluegrass variety that is excellent for sod farms, sports fields, landscapers, and retail. Appalachian Bluegrass will be up and green in the spring before most other Bluegrasses are starting to come out of winter dormancy. The dark green color mixes well with other species to prevent the mottled look. Appalachian Kentucky Bluegrass is an excellent choice every time. Appalachian was developed with quick establishment in mind. It is wear tolerant and repairs itself by rhizomes. Excellent for usage worldwide where other cool season grasses grow.
Rhythm is a new generation Compact-Midnight-type Kentucky Bluegrass. Rhythm exhibits darker genetic color and improved resistance to leaf spot diseases when compared with competing varieties. Rhythm Kentucky Bluegrass also demonstrated better density and winter color than other Midnight types in recent trials at Rutgers University. Rhythm was developed for heat tolerance. It is an excellent choice for areas in the southern edge of the Bluegrass growing region. It is wear tolerant and repairs itself with rhizomes.
Rugby II scored among the top 14 entries in a recent NTEP Kentucky Bluegrass trial under medium-high maintenance. It ranked in the top 10 in Indiana, Illinois, Washington state, Missouri, Rhode Island and Alberta, Canada. Rugby II showed strong quality performance at a cutting height of ½ inch. It was the #1 entry out of 3000 experimental varieties in a recent close cutting trial in Post Falls, ID. It was immune to several Poa annua control chemicals commonly used for fairway maintenance.
