Perennial Ryegrass

Perennial ryegrass is a cool season bunch grass known for great turf quality, quick establishment and excellent wear tolerance. It is suitable for winter overseeding in the United States to keep fairways and lawns green, but can also be utilized as perennial turf in more temperate climates. Perennial ryegrass is also a popular choice in turf blends due to its quick establishment and superior wear tolerance.
