What is cool season grass?

Cool Season Grasses

Cool season grasses are grasses that start to grow in the early spring. Most cool season grasses retain their green color into the winter months.

It is important to keep cool season grasses watered, especially if your area is not receiving an adequate amount of rainfall. If cool season grasses go without water, they may go into a dormant phase which will turn their foliage brown.

At the end of winter and start of spring, you should cut off any brown foliage on your cool season grasses to promote new growth. Favorite cool season grasses include Tufted Hair Grass, Autumn Moor Grass and Blue Oat Grass.
