Jonathan Green’s Black Beauty® Sunny Grass Seed contains turf grass varieties that perform best in full sun growing conditions due to their ability to tolerate heat and have great drought resistance. These Black Beauty® turf-type tall fescues possess a waxy leaf coating, like the skin on an apple, which preserves moisture by limiting evaporation and shielding the grass leaves from turf disease. This product performs particularly well on slopes where water runs off and in lawns with a southern exposure, whereas regular grass seed mixtures succumb to heat and drought stress. This seed germinates in 7-14 days.
IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION: Typically ships in 2-3 business days! Please be sure you get the right product and know what's in the bag you are ordering.
