Abstract/Contents:Buffalograss and centipedegrass are not normally grown in shaded conditions, but the advent of new varieties of these species increases the likelihood of one of these varieties being adapted to shade culture. Seven buffalograss and seven centipedegrass lines were planted in dense shade created by a stand of live oaks and cedar elms (only about 15 percent of full sunlight was available under the canopy). For all buffalograss entries, good density was observed most frequently in early summer. Centipedegrass canopy density was poor for all entries. Experimental line CG8501 was observed to have the best density of the centipedegrass entries, which was only marginal quality. The color at the final note date was good to excellent for all buffalograss and centipedegrass entries except the centipedegrass standard variety, "Centennial", which had marginal color quality.
