Question:Can you tell us if redtop will start out coarse in the spring and gradually get finer because of cutting as the summer progresses?
Source of Question:Colorado
Keywords:TIC Keywords: Agrostis alba; Leaf texture; Seasonal variation
Answer/Response:Redtop ordinarily does not get finer during the summer. At seeding time redtop and many of the bents try to send up flower heads even in closely cut turf. The leaves attached to these flowering stalks are especially coarse. These will usually disappear by mid-summer although the regular leaves of the redtop will remain coarser than those of some of the other turf grasses.
