HARMONIE

Poa pratensis

Kentucky bluegrass

Fine leaf texture and high wear tolerance combined

Extremely hardwearing
HARMONIE is one of the densest varieties available, with an exceptional wear tolerance. The high density leads to a good equilibrium in mixtures with perennial ryegrass. The dense growth does not leave many chances for Poa annua to establish.

Very fine leaf texture
Smooth stalked meadow grass is generally not very fine leaved, but HARMONIE is an exception. The very high density and narrow leaves opens the door for use in parks and home lawns where a high visual merit is important. Despite the fine leaves HARMONIE is a premium choice for hardwearing sport fields!

Remarquable leaf spot resistance
Drecslera leaf spot is a frequent disease in turfgrasses, and in Smooth Stalked Meadow Grass in particular. The very high tolerance of HARMONIE helps maintaining visual merit and playing quality. Drecslera is not only frequent, but can be present for weeks and months each year.
