zoysia matrella grows very well here in north chattanooga. I have sprigged, plugged, and sodded all with success. I have even planted as late as November and the grass survived. Tough stuff! I highly recommend this grass for anyone who loves fine bladed grass. looks like golf course grass. I do need to note that I may be living in a slightly warmer micro climate. This may be why I have had such great success.
