Characteristics and uses:
The Korean Velvet Grass or Zoysia, is a perennial ground-covering grass. It can be trampled, and that even improves its density. Do not hesitate to plant it where people come and go.

It is also a good alternative to traditional lawn in any parts of the garden where:

  • you want only a minimum of care :
    Mow this grass 2 to 5 times a year maximum to improve the density, no need to water as it is drought resistant!
  • no other plant grows :
    It thrives in full sun or shady areas, on irregular ground, on seacoast.
  • you do not wish to work the soil :
    It adapts to any types of soil, can be associated to rocks or to any other kind of garden arrangement or furniture.

Winter distinctive characteristic
it is often used in the South or South West of France. In regions with a colder climate or after a frost spell, it could turn yellow. This change of colour could last more or less according to the winter temperatures. Do not worry as it will become green again with the coming of Spring!
