USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

'Bella™' Bluegrass for shade and semi-shade is a truly revolutionary dwarf turf grass that requires 30% less water than traditional Bluegrass. 'Bella™' Bluegrass has roots reaching down 3-3 1/2 feet deep into the soil. Being a dwarf variety, 'Bella™' Bluegrass doesn't require mowing, as it completes its upward leaf growth by mid-June. 'Bella™' will retain it’s lovely dark blue-green color in fall, longer than many other turf selections and green up more quickly in the spring. It is extremely resistant to heat, drought and disease.

The grass blades grow to a height of only 2 to 3 inches. 'Bella™' Bluegrass stays green over a long stretch of the growing season from early spring into late fall. It is an excellent choice for both the full sun and part shade areas (80%) of your yard. This cool-season grass thrives in cold climates, yet is also excellent in warm climates (except the southernmost areas of the US). 'Bella™' is durable, versatile, and grows in most soil types including sand, sandy loam, clay or peat.

Space plugs 6" apart; one flat covers 17 sq. ft. 'Bella™' Bluegrass plugs can be installed anytime the ground is not frozen in the recommended planting areas. See Lawn Replacement Instructions for more information. A detailed planting and maintenance instruction sheet is provided with each order.

Please note: Our grass plugs ship separately from perennials and seed products. Orders for grass plugs get processed on Thursdays and shipped out the following Monday.
