What is the difference between warm and cool season grasses?

Cool season grass species include creeping bentgrass, fine fescue, tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, annual ryegrass and perennial ryegrass. Warm-season turfgrass are those species with optimum growth at temperatures between 80 and 95°F (27 to 35°C).

Also, is fescue a cool or warm season grass?

Tall fescue, which is used extensively in the transition region, is a low-maintenance, heat-tolerant, cool-season grass with fine to medium blade texture. In this zone, tall fescue can add season-long color to Kentucky bluegrass and perennial ryegrass mixes.

Is bluegrass a warm season grass?

Kentucky bluegrass, bentgrass, ryegrass, and the fescues are all cool-season grasses. Warm-season grasses grow best in southern regions. The main growing period for warm-season grass is in the summer when soil temperature is between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit, and the air temperature is 80 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
