Also called Z-52, this grass variety is an improved cultivar of Zoysia japonica. It has a medium, dark-green color with intermediate leaf texture and shoot density.
It is the most cold tolerant zoysia grass, and is grown as far north as Pennsylvania and Missouri. This is the zoysia grass often advertised as the super grass in newspapers and magazines
Meyer can be established using plugs, sprigs, or sod and is excellent for lawns. It grows in semi-shaded areas, yet thrives in full sun light.
Tifton 419 Bermuda is a very dense and fine textured hybrid Bermuda grass. It is low growing and spreads rapidly. Its density, fine texture and soft blades provide a soft cushion in which to walk and play.
This hybrid Bermuda grass is highly disease resistant with a very dark green color. Consequently, it maintains a desirable green color longer, with less nitrogen requirements than most other selections. It is also more frost resistant than other Bermuda grasses. As a result, it will remain greener deeper into the fall months.
Tifton 419 is more resistant to sod web worm and mole cricket attacks. Because of its extreme denseness, it is more weed resistant than most Bermuda grasses. Tifton 419 never produces seed, so it must be propagated by sprigs or sod. Recommended for residential and commercial landscapes, golf courses, parks and athletic fields.
