Rough bluegrass is best adapted
to wet, cool, and shady areas. A cool-season grass, it is sometimes
used for shaded turf in the fog belt areas and can be used to overseed
A fine-bladed yellow-green grass.
Leaves are folded in the bud, there are no auricles, and a membranous
ligule is present. Leaf blades slightly taper to form a boat-shaped
tip. The lower surface of the blade is glossy; the upper surface has
a characteristic median midrib. Rough bluegrass has a shallow root
system and spreads by stolons.
Moderate maintenance. Rough bluegrass
requires rich soils and a lot of water. It tolerates low temperatures, but
will not tolerate wear, heat, or drought.
