Zoysia grass has been used in landscapes and golf courses in the USA for more than 50 years.
Zoysia japonica grass varieties survive over winter as far north as Canada. Zoysia grass varieties generally have shorter green periods the further north they are grown, but winter kill is rarely a problem.
Rather than die from the cold temperatures, Zoysia grass will go dormant, turning a golden brown, until temperatures rise again when it will green up.
Adaptation Areas For Zoysia Grass - USA Map
Please see the adaptation map below for growing Zoysia grass in the USA.
ZOYSIA GRASS IS BEST ADAPTED FOR LOCATIONS SOUTH OF MICHIGAN
THE YELLOW & GREEN AREAS ON MAP BELOW.
||Best - Green 6 months or more
||Okay - Green 6 months or LESS
||Zoysia NOT Recommended
All Zoysia Grasses will go brown - dormant - with frost or freeze and will remain that way until air temperatures above 70° return, in some areas, late spring. This can be as long
as May depending on location and weather temperatures.
Advantage of Zoysia Grass Over Cool Season Grass Types
Unlike cool season fairways of bluegrass, ryegrass and/or bentgrass, zoysia grass areas are planted once.
The creeping nature of Zoysia grass allows the turf plant to recover from wear and traffic without reseeding. This will add up to a substantial savings from reseeding cool season grasses every fall.

SEED USE NOTICE
Please note that we ONLY
recommend planting Zoysia grass seed in bare soil areas. Planting seeds into existing grasses has a HIGH
FAILURE rate. If planting into an existing lawn (grass and/or weeds) we recommend that you consider
using Zoysia Grass plugs instead of seeds. - Zoysia grass seed are also
difficult to achieve germination in low light / shady areas. Use grass plugs in these areas for best results.
a beautiful tomorrow!®
