Patriot bermudagrass serves a very specific purpose – rapid, aggressive growth. This feature is ideal for the northern transition zone, but it is still suited for hardiness zones 7A, 7B, 8A, and 8B.
Patriot features excellent cold tolerance, and excellent drought tolerance, which means lower irrigation costs. This variety offers versatility – with the recommended mowing height ranging from 0.75” to 2.0”, Patriot can be used for a variety of purposes. Home lawns, commercial properties, athletic fields, playgrounds, golf fairways, tees and roughs – all are great fits for this high-speed bermudagrass.
All herbicides and insecticides labeled for use on bermudagrasses are safe to use on Patriot, and fertility requirement is 3 to 4 lbs. N/1,000 ft2/year.
While this variety is quick to spread and is a versatile choice, it does require full sun (8 hours per day) for optimal growth.
