Zoysia Grass Seed (agriCOTE Enhanced) – 100% Zoysia Grass Seed
Zoysia Grass (Japonica) is a warm season tropical grass that stands up to heat, drought and heavy wear and tear. This means its active growth starts in early or late spring, depending on location and peaks in the hot summer months.
Zoysia has a dark green leaf tone, medium leaf size and enhanced density, providing a beautiful lush cover. Zoysia Grass is an excellent choice for shade, coping well with 40% shade for wear areas, and 50% shade for low wear areas perfect for grassed areas that have overhanging foliage.
Zoysia is hardy and can withstand heavy use, being very resistant to damage. This hardiness extends to the conditions that it will grow in. Zoysia doesn’t need an overly fertile soil to happily grow, nor does it need to be regularly fertilised.
Zoysia is a low maintenance grass and a very slow grower which means less time mowing. Despite having runners that allow the grass to spread, it does not overtake the lawn and interrow too quickly. All Zoysia grass varieties spread by surface stolons and underground rhizomes. The presence of rhizomes also increases the hardiness of the variety, for winter survival or drought tolerance.
Zoysia is drought, heat and salt tolerant. It also stands up well under heavy wear and tear. It is recommended for shaded areas in Northern Australia but will always prefer being in a more sunny position. Zoysia does not tolerate cold weather very well meaning active growth starts in early or late spring, depending on location and peaks in the hot summer months. It should only be planted in the warmer regions of Australia where other warm season lawns are grown, such as Buffalo and Couch. It is not recommended for Victoria or Tasmania as it does not perform well in frost.
Zoysia grass has the ability to remain alive in conditions that most other grasses would perish in. The root system is amongst the deepest for grasses and adapts easily to numerous soil types, from sand to clay. However, there is a downside. Zoysia grass is very susceptible to cold conditions and is, therefore, best suited to warm climates. In cooler areas, zoysia grass will turn brown and unless or until warm conditions return, this grass will lay dormant.
Zoysia is recommended for use in Lawns, Commercial Landscapes, Sporting Fields & Golf Courses.
