Zoysia Variety Details And Descriptions

Zenith Zoysia is sold here by SEEDLAND. Zenith Zoysia grass is one of the few seeded zoysia varieties that is easily planted and grown on a well-prepared seedbed. Zenith Zoysia makes a beautiful, dense, warm season turf. Once fully established this variety can perform well in high traffic areas. Zenith germinates in 14-24 days in soil temperatures of at least 70 degrees with Irrigation. Sow up until 90 before frost above the North Carolina border and up 60 days before frost in the rest of the frost zones of the south. Best results are achieved by planting in early spring when soil temps reach 65 degrees or higher. Click here to see a golf course planted in zenith zoysia.

Empire Zoysia is available as grass plugs from Seedland.com. Empire Zoysia has tight blade growth which contributes to the depth of color found in Empire Zoysia. With its wide blades and luscious dark green hue that lasts through much of the winter, it's truly a turf grass that will make your neighbors jealous. You'll also enjoy greatly enhanced curb appeal for your home. It is one of the few grasses rated to perform well in all zones. As hardy as it is attractive, Empire has a deep, thick root structure and is more drought tolerant than most varieties of Zoysia once established. In addition, slow growth plus natural cinch bug and chemical resistance mean your lawn will require less maintenance, mowing and watering than with other types of warm season grass.

Emerald Zoysia is a varietal hybrid of japonica and tenuifolia and can only be grown with propagation methods by sprigging or plugs. Emerald zoysia has a deep green color as the name implies and was developed to be faster growing and is used mostly on golf courses in the south. At the present time, Seedland does NOT sell Emerald Zoysia.

El Toro Zoysia was developed in the state of California and is a variety developed from the species japonica. This variety has the best shade tolerance of the Zoysia grass varieties and also has good drought resistance. El Toro is grown by vegetative propagation. At the present time, Seedland does NOT sell El Toro Zoysia.

Meyer (Amazoy) also called Z52 was introduced as the best grass variety in America and was highly written about in articles as the new breed of zoysia. Meyer has beautiful color, density and fair cold tolerance allowing the areas of adaptation to extend farther North than other warm season grasses can grow. Propagated methods are sod, plugs, and sprigs. Meyer seeds are only occasionally available. Currently Seedland does NOT sell Meyer seed.

Other varieties such as Cashmere, Zorro, etc. may be sold by local sod company suppliers - Seedland does not currently sell these varieties as plugs or sod. NOTE that Seedland only sells plugs (no sod) - For sod check in yellow pages under "sodding" or "landscaping".
