Midnight Kentucky Bluegrass Seed.

Plant Rate of 2 - 3 lbs per 1,000 Sq. ft.

Midnight Kentucky Bluegrass is very dark green and, although they dont usually resume growth until late spring, tolerate high temperatures.

Kentucky bluegrass, a widely used perennial turfgrass in temperate and sub-arctic climates, is probably the most recognizable species in the U.S. Kentucky bluegrass is native to northern Asia; the mountains of Algeria and Morocco; and cool, open sites in Europe. The species gets its name from the origin of the early, commercially produced seed and its blue-green color. Leaf blades are V-shaped or flat and have a keel- or boat-shaped tip.

A light line can often be seen on each side of the central vein of the leaf blade. Plants grow best in fertile, well-drained soils in full sun or light, open shade.

Kentucky bluegrass establishes slowly from seed compared to perennial ryegrass and tall fescue. A relatively high water requirement; lack of establishment vigor; shallow root system; and limited shade, wear and soil acidity tolerance restrict the use of Kentucky bluegrass in Tennessee. Many sod producers plant a 90:10 (by weight) tall fescue: Kentucky bluegrass seed mixture.

Kentucky bluegrass is darker green than many varieties of improved, turf-type tall fescues. The strong rhizomes of Kentucky bluegrass can improve the tensile strength of sod. When weather is favorable, one Kentucky bluegrass plant can produce from 20 to 50 or more feet of rhizomes in five months.

5 of 5 Super fast Shipping July 11, 2021
Reviewer: William from Manitoba, Canada  
I cannot review the seeds themselves because the weather conditions are not favorable to plant seeds at this time.  However, Shipping was incredibly fast. The people at Seed Ranch got my order together immediately and notified me right away. Shipping was standard FedEx ground. The tracking details were awesome. The package came from Florida and was being delivered to Manitoba, Canada. It arrived in FIVE days. WOW!  I've had shipments take longer delivering in Canada!  Great Job! Thanks Seed Ranch.

5 of 5 beautiful October 27, 2018
Reviewer: Marianne from Warrenton, VA United States  
The seed itself was beautiful and packaged nicely. I was surprised at how far it went when I seeded. I have a small yard, but I overseed and the 5 lbs covered the entire yard nicely. I am very excited to see what growth I get. I was happy with the delivery time--the seed got her faster than I expected.
