Question:I would appreciate very much some information from your office regarding suitable grasses for shady and semi-shady spots.
Source of Question:Virginia
Keywords:TIC Keywords: Choice of cultivar; Poa trivialis; Recommendations; Shade resistance
Answer/Response:For your shaded areas where the soil tends to remain moist or which can be watered regularly, we think you will find that Poa trivialis can be expected to give the best results. It will have, however, a weak period during the summer months. For the areas that are well drained and tend to be rather dry the best grass for shade is Chewings fescue. Kentucky bluegrass should do well in partial shade and out in the open. It will, however, die during the summer months in most heavily shaded places.
