Kentucky Bluegrass - Common

Kentucky Bluegrass will spread and weave through other grasses to make thick stands when mixed.  Rhizomes produce a dense sod and can survive low grazing from horses and sheep. Grows 1 to 3 feet tall. Completely dormant in summer.  Yields are considerably less than other perennial cool season grasses.  Major uses in southern areas are pasture, limited use for hay. High nutritive value. Seed are planted at 10 to 15 lb/A in August-September, or sometimes in February-March.
