Ryegrasses were brought to the U.S. from Europe and are now grown and planted throughout the country. Ryegrasses (both annual and perennial) can be grown on their own in the northern states for lawns. In
many areas of the country, largely because this grass is so versatile, it is incorporated in seeding mixes with other grasses.

 

CHARACTERISTICS:

USES: Lawns, athletic fields, golf course, all general use. Excellent when used in mixes. Ideal in sun and
tolerates partial shade.

IDENTIFICATION: A fast growing bunch type grass that spreads by tillers (stems). Leaves are dark green
and glossy on the underside, tapered, pointed with a folded vernation (stem). Varieties available both as
annuals, intermediates and perennials.

ESTABLISHMENT: Germinates and establishes very quickly. Fills by tillers. Popular over-seeder because of
quick germ.
