  • Germinates and grows in soil temperatures down to 3 degrees (other Perennial Ryegrasses require 8-12 degrees)
  • Suitable for sowings 11-12 months a year (if soil temperature is 3 degrees +)
  • Rapid to germinate and establish (even in cold conditions), extremely fast growing, high wear tolerance, drought tolerant, great all year-round colour and has a high resistance to disease.
  • A perennial mix that will last forever unlike some competitor mixtures including annual ryegrass
  • Fine leaved grasses unlike tetraploids and annual ryegrasses

  • Ideal for Autumn or Early spring renovations. Suitable for all heavy wear sports and hardwearing lawn/landscaping areas
  • Colosseum was bred from the few surviving plants out of a test cricket pitch and temperatures down to -15 degrees. The surviving plants were crossed and resulted in a cultivar capable of withstanding extreme adverse conditions. It is used in many New Zealand stadiums including Wellington Park (Westpac Stadium)
  • Agreement is another winter active diploid grass. Germinating down to soil temperatures of 3 degrees it consistently shows better germination results compared with other ryegrass cultivars at low temperatures.
