Penncross has set the bentgrass standard since 1955. It has a medium green coloration and has rapid establishment. It is known for its aggressive, lateral growth habit, and wide range of adaptability. Penncross has excellent resistance to dollar spot as well as other diseases. The seed count (over 6,000,000 seeds per pound) allows for lower seeding rate: 1.5 lbs/1000 sq ft for new plantings and 0.1 to 0.25 lbs/1000 sq ft for interseeding. If maintained properly, Penncross will provide an excellent playing surface for greens, tees, and fairways.
