Abstract/Contents:Profiles Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis), stating that it "is the grass species most often used for turf in Ohio. The fine texture of the leaves, along with the capacity to produce numerous shoots and rhizomes, makes this grass well suited for use in home lawns, golf course fairways and tees, cemeteries, and recreational establishments such as parks and playgrounds." Lists several varieties of Kentucky bluegrass, highlighting potential advantages to each, including, Merion, Park, Nu Dwarf, Newport, Delta, Pacific-Northwest, Prato, and Arboretum. Cautions that "blending several inferior Kentucky bluegrass varieties will not improve quality."
