Princess 77 Bermudagrass is a medium-fine textured, dark green grass that has good heat and wear tolerance. It is the first dense, fine textured F1 hybrid bermudagrass variety to be available in seeded form. Princess 77 is also much more drought-tolerant than common bermudagrass. It can be used for commercial or residential use and is particularly good for high traffic areas such as athletics fields and golf courses.
Princess 77 is recommended for golf course fairways and tees, athletic fields, home lawns and commercial landscapes.
COLOR & TEXTURE
Distinctive, dark blue-green color with medium fine textured leave.
Grows well in all types, from heavy clay to sandy soils. Displays an above average tolerance to acidic, alkaline, and saline soils.
Mow to a height of .5 to 1.5 inches. Frequency is once to twice a week. Rotary or Reel type mower.
To avoid dry out, all newly planted turf should be watered daily and soaked thoroughly to a depth of 3 inches for the first 10 to 14 days. After that initial period, water deeply and infrequently whenever grass is showing signs of dehydration.
0.5 to 1 pound of actual nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft. per growing month when combined with recommended phosphorous and potassium. A good rule of thumb is to apply slow release fertilizers around the holidays (i.e. Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Apply iron in the summer to keep a deep green color. Good balanced fertilizer is 15-15-15- 3F, 21-14-5-3F or 20-20-10-3F. Use a good winterizer for the Labor Day application.
