Royal Super Shade Mix featuring Supra Nova BleugrassRoyal Super Shade Mix
Features 'Supra Nova'™ Bluegrass (Poa supina)

Super Shade Mix is a cool-season grass seed mixture made of very shade tolerant grasses that will persist in shady areas where virtually all other grasses fail. It contains shade tolerant fine-leaved fescues and Poa supina which is a new bluegrass variety that demonstrates incredible tolerance to shade. Our mix is very persistent, thrives under high traffic and is a cool-season grass mix well adapted to the Northwest.

Before you give up on that shady area where grass has not grown in the past, try our Super Shade Mix!

SUPRA NOVA™ Bluegrass
Botanical name: Poa supina as contained in our Super Shade Mix

Characteristics: Very tiny seeds, germinates in 4 weeks, slow to develop so it is best to not rake your fall leaves but blow them off with a leaf blower. It has exceptional wear tolerance, will dominate other grasses in high traffic areas, and adapts itself well to shady areas in as much as 40% shade. Poa supina provides good color integration with other grass species while it is in the process of dominating them. Poa supina is slow to germinate so it will develop slowly with the fescues. During the first year of establishment, the fescues will be the dominant grasses. Poa supina will begin to exert its dominance the year following planting. The development of any good stand of turf requires regular watering and fertilization which are prerequisites in establishing a healthy stand of our Royal Super Shade Mix.
