Fireball is a new variety that is performing well in a wide variety of climates. It is considered to be an elite perennial ryegrass and used for sports fields as well as home lawns. It forms an extensive root system to give it durability and wear tolerance. Fireball is a permanent lawn in the cooler climates and a great choice for over-seeding warm season grasses in the southern states to provide a year round green.

Private is a new generation, heat and disease tolerant, decumbent, very dark green, photoperiod sensitive, endophyte enhanced (>90%) perennial ryegrass variety. Private can be utilized in all perennial ryegrass applications but will be promoted in the transitional climates where heat and disease have been limiting factors to permanent perennial ryegrass turf utilization. Private forms a leafy fine textured turf with rapid seedling germination, excellent traffic tolerance and poly-specie compatibility. Plant growth of perennial ryegrass is dominated by aggressive basal tillering in contrast to vegetative stolons (above ground) and rhizomes (below ground).

PNW is an elite perennial ryegrass featuring a dark green turf color, a fine leaf texture and excellent fall density. This variety should stand up well against wear, making it a top choice for sports fields and other high traffic areas. PNW has demonstrated strong resistance to disease and is a stand-out for high-end sports turf and home lawns.

Boreal is a tried and true member of the cool season Creeping Red Fescue grass family. Boreal has the ability to "creep" or spread through underground shoots which help repair damaged areas and fill in thin stands of lawn. It is a beautiful shade of green and will maintain its color without extra fertilizer.

An advantage to Boreal is that it is cold tolerant and mixes well with most other cool season grasses. It is highly recommended for use in mixtures for medium fine sports turf, heavy duty sports turf, and low maintenance situations.
