Description:


Annual Rye grass is one of the most popular seeds sold for lawns and is planted all over the world on it's own and in numerous grass seed mixtures. This cool season grass should be planted in early spring or fall in temperatures of 61-70°F. Annual Rye grass performs best in sunny and shady conditions. Annual rye grass is exceptionally useful as a cover grass when planted with slower growing permanent lawns. Ideally suited for short term seasonal use in areas reaching below the transition zone, annual rye grass is a great cover to create green grass on new grass areas. In warmer regions, rye grass lawns may require watering, fertilization and more frequent mowing.

Its uses are many, including temporary coverage for erosion control, short term use on reclamation sites, parks, new lawns, and along highways. Annual rye grass may be seeded with other grass mixtures, legumes, clovers and small grains. Annual Rye grass is fast germinating, quick growing and requires low to medium fertilization.
