WINTER WEATHER AND AMAZOY ZOYSIA GRASS
posted on March 14th, 2014 by Zoysia Farms
BRRR!!!!! It sure has been a cold, snowy, icy winter and it keeps coming. Who ever heard of us having a “Polar Vortex”? It is amazing that a warm weather grass can withstand these types of conditions. Not to worry, if you have Amazoy zoysia grass, it has not been nearly cold enough or icy enough to damage. This grass can withstand temperatures anywhere from 120 degrees to -30 degrees. That’s the beauty of Amazoy zoysia grass it is the most cold tolerant of all the zoysias. Unfortunately, many zoysia grasses can winter kill if subject to conditions like we had this year and would need to be replanted in the spring.
Once the ground temperatures drop to 50 degrees or lower Amazoy zoysia grass will go dormant. This is a nature process that helps the grass tolerate extreme cold temperatures and conditions. Once the temperatures reach and maintain 70 degrees or higher Amazoy zoysia grass will regain its lush green color back.
It sure is nice not to have to worry about your Amazoy zoysia lawn during these harsh months!
