Which Buffalograss do I choose?

It is unrealistic to think that any one grass is perfect for all locations. That is why we offer several cultivars of buffalograss to fit your climate and region.


The following is a general geographic guideline for planting of each one of the three varieties. These are only guidelines. There are always exceptions.  You may want to use more than one variety in your landscape to create a contrast in looks.  These grasses are great for lawns, border plantings, street plantings or as a short ornamental garden.  Ask for these grasses at your local garden center or order online.  We are also contracting with sod farms throughout North America to better serve those who wish to sod instead of plugging. For more information on a distributor in your area go to the Buffalograss Grower and Distributor Page.


Developed by the University of Nebraska and released for sale in 2000, Legacy® changed the way people look at buffalograss turf. It has a dark blue-green color and only grows 3 to 5 inches high. Its dense canopy of fine leaf blades creates a very soft carpet which is perfect for lawn activities. Legacy also shows better shade tolerance than previous varieties. Legacy will grow in shade, but it is not as aggressive and will not spread as well as in full sun. It is cold hardy to Zone 2.  Please refer to the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map if you are not familiar with which zone you live in.

The University of California released this remarkable grass in 2003. UC Verde produces a dense turf of soft, bright-green, very fine leaf blades. It is excellent for the adverse conditions found in the lower valley of the desert southwest and California. UC Verde will grow to a maximum height of 4 to 8 inches in most locations. UC Verde is available only as accelerated growth plugs.

Prestige is the latest release from the University of Nebraska. It outperforms all other varieties of buffalograss in the southern and southeastern United States. It has exceptional disease and insect resistance. Prestige also has fine soft blades with a stunning green color and grows to a height of 4 to 6 inches.    800-869-8544     View our PRIVACY POLICY       Revised March 1, 2010
