Colonial Bentgrass - Agrostis tenuis Sibth
Colonial bentgrass is a cool-season grass that thrives in cool coastal weather. It does best in cool, humid weather and can tolerate some shade. It is a moderate to high maintenance grass. It has a low tolerance for heat, salinity, water stress and traffic. It requires frequent irrigation, aerating and dethatching, and a relatively high level of fertilizer. Colonial bentgrass is slow to recover from moderate wear. 'Highland' is a cultivar of colonial bentgrass that tends to have a slightly higher tolerance for heat and drought. Great for forage and turf. Increases organic matter content and is therefore great for conservation uses. It is also perfect for golf course fairways, tees, and home lawns in Northeast and Northwest (in particular.) Should be used alone.
Seeding Rate: 2-3 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft.
