Midnight Kentucky BluegrassMidnight Kentucky Bluegrass Seed grows a unique compact-type variety from Turf-Seed, Inc. which possesses the qualities most desired by turf-grass professionals. Those qualities include:

  • A very dark blue-green color
  • Dwarf growth habit
  • Very high tiller density
  • Drought tolerance
  • Strong overall disease resistance
  • Good tolerance to close mowing
  • More than 15 years of proven performance!

Probably the most outstanding feature of Midnight Kentucky bluegrass is its unusually dark blue-green color giving it a rich color even under low maintenance conditions. Its high tiller density provides a thick carpet that will stand up to the abuses of athletic fields and high traffic. Sod producers and homeowners alike will enjoy Midnight's dwarf growth characteristics which result in fewer mowings and lower maintenance costs.

This outstanding cultivar shows good resistance to leaf spot and stem rust, stripe smut and dollar spot. University trials have documented Midnight's heat and drought tolerance.

Special Note: Because of its very noticeable dark green color you may need to use caution with using Midnight to overseed high visual-impact sports field stands. Proper / even overseeding must be used. Midnight is at its best when used as a pure mono-stand lawn grass... but it also can be mixed into existing KBG stands to improve home lawns.

MIDNIGHT KENTUCKY
BLUEGRASS SEED
From Seedland

Available in 10 & 50 LB sizes.

Midnight Kentucky Blue Grass
Above: Midnight in shady conditions. Midnight has good shade tolerance when compared to other Bluegrass varieties under shade conditions.  Like all Bluegrasses, Midnight performs best under full sun conditions. In heavier shady areas a fine fescue may be a better choice, or add into a mix.

Midnight is also available
 in our Seedland ELITE Mixture!
40% Midnight + 40% Perennial Ryegrass & 20% Fine Fescue.

Uses For Midnight Bluegrass

Midnight is recommended for use on athletic fields, golf courses, sod blends, parks, professional landscaped, and home lawns areas where Kentucky bluegrass is adapted. It is compatible in blends with other darker green, lower growing bluegrasses and in mixtures with strong creeping red fescues and improved “II” and “III” series of turf-type perennial ryegrasses.

Soil, Climate and Fertility Requirements

Midnight performs well in sand or heavy clay soils, and like all bluegrasses, performs best in soils with a pH of 5.5 to 8.0. Three to five lbs. N/1000 sq. ft./year is adequate in most areas of the United states. However, because of Midnight’s dark genetic color, lower fertilizer rates will yield acceptable color. A balanced fertilizer of 3:1:2 ratio of NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium) with sulphur is recommended in most geographic locations.

Establishment of Midnight Kentucky Bluegrass

Midnight, like all bluegrasses, requires about 3 weeks for complete germination. Color may be observed before that time, however, in good growing weather where soil temperatures are above 65 degrees F., expect 3 to 4 weeks for a complete stand of grass. Midnight has good mowing qualities and can be maintained at a cutting height of 1/2 to 2 inches.

Plant Patent Protected Variety

Midnight has been granted PVP number 8200181. Unauthorized increase is prohibited.  Read about how high Midnight rates at www.ntep.org
