Compadre ( previously known as companion Zoysia) was chosen by Seed Research breeders as a good replacement for many existing vegetative and seeded Zoysia varieties that are hard to germinate and establish from seed or plugs.

Compadre Zoysia creates a dense growing Zoysia turf that inhibits weeds.

This medium-fine textured turf grass is much darker green in color than many other zoysia grass varieties currently available to the turf grass professional. Compadre is an excellent turf choice, especially in areas where Grey Leaf Spot disease is destroying existing perennial ryegrass turf.

Seed Researchers Recommend Compadre Zoysia

Compare Compadre Zoysia With other zoysia grass varieties.

Zoysiagrass established from seed.

Compadre ZOYSIA: This zoysia grass variety has been chosen by Seed Research breeders due to its high turf quality, very dark green color and consistent seed yield. Compadre Zoysia has performed well in turf grass trial plantings in various locations, in comparison to both seeded and vegetative varieties. Compadre Zoysia seed is recommended as a good replacement for many of the existing vegetative and seeded zoysia varieties that are slow to germinate and establish from seed or plugs - the seeds have been primed for faster germination & establishment.

Mixing Compadre Zoysia with a turf-type tall fescue can produce an excellent year round turf, in the transition zone and temperate climates. (see note below). Like other zoysia varieties, Compadre Zoysia does go dormant in winter, but this variety generally goes dormant later than other varieties, and will usually be the first to green up the following spring. While dormant, it maintains a pleasant, uniform golden brown color until warm weather returns. With proper care and preparation, dormant Compadre can be overseeded for winter green color. 

Seeded zoysia performs well in a mixture with turf-type tall fescues, as long as the turf manager maintains a primary fertilizer schedule in the fall and early spring - do not fertilize in mid-summer for best results.  Tall fescue seeds should ONLY be added after the zoysia has become established. 

IMPORTANT ESTABLISHMENT NOTE (Fescue + Zoysia):  You must first establish the zoysia starting at the appropriate time in the spring or early summer.  Once the zoysia has germinated and the plants have grown some you can plant tall fescue in the FALL (or second fall after planting is more ideal) after the zoysia has been established.  Best to use a slit seeder machine to plant the tall fescue. DO NOT PLANT the fescue and zoysia at the same time. - Zoysia must become established first before incorporating the tall fescue. - Planting both grasses at the same time may result in failure of the zoysia seed plants to establish. If you already have tall fescue established you must use zoysia plugs instead of seeds.

Name Change Note: Compadre Zoysia was formerly known as Companion Zoysia.
The name was changed due to a trademark agreement.
It is the exact same grass variety - just with a new name.

SEED USE NOTICE: Please note that we ONLY recommend Zoysia seeds for use in bare soil areas. Planting seeds into existing grasses has a HIGH FAILURE rate. If planting into an existing lawn (grass and/or weeds) we recommend that you consider using  Zoysia Grass plugs instead of seeds. - Zoysia seeds also are difficult to achieve germination in low light / shady areas. Use plugs in these areas for best results.

"Compadre Zoysia is everything you need in a turfgrass," said Mike Hills, Research Agronomist for Seed Research. "It's a top performer in stressful conditions, a natural weed suppressor and a survivor in extreme summer and winter climates."

Due to its late fall dormancy and early spring green-up, Compadre can be overseeded for winter green color. It is best to wait until the second year of growth to overseed so as allow the Zoysia to become fully matured and established. Compadre is an ideal choice for renovations or new construction as well and can be maintained at variable mowing heights for different purposes. It is extremely tolerant of high salt concentrations in water or soil.
