Definition of warm season grasses

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Calalily:

Grasses that need warm weather to germinate and actively grow. Sometimes they also need long days to really get going.

Definition as written by Terry:

Warm season grasses are more commonly found in the South (e.g., Zoysia, Bermuda, St. Augustine, etc.) They go dormant in the winter in colder zones, turning a tawny color - which some gardeners like and others don't. Some gardeners will overseed with cool season grasses to have a green lawn year-round.
