• Zeon Zoysia

Superior Genetic Characteristics

Superior Genetic Characteristics

Zeon Zoysia® is another of the improved zoysia cultivars chosen for its superior genetic characteristics by BladeRunner Farms. Discovered by David Doguet, this fine-textured progeny came from selections collected by USDA breeder Jack Murray, in Kobe, Japan. Zeon was engineered and developed to provide the landscape industry with a superior fine bladed zoysia, with increased shade tolerance, low incidence of thatch production, and an accelerated rate of spread. In addition, Zeon is fairly low maintenance and can be mowed using a standard rotary type machine.

Requirements & Characteristics

Requirements, Irrigation & Characteristics

Light Requirements: 
Zeon Zoysia is the one of the most shade tolerant warm season grasses available in Georgia and the Atlanta Area. Handling as little as 4 hours of sun, Zeon Zoysia has been a suitable replacement for many Fescue yards in Metro Atlanta.

 

Irrigation: 
Though drought tolerant, to maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Zeon Zoysia needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water.

 

CHARACTERISTICS:

Hot Weather Tolerance : Excellent
Sun Requirement : 4 hours (Excellent)
Wear Resistance : Good
Injury Recovery : Good
Winter Color : Dormant
Mowing Height : 1" - 3"
