ZORRO ZOYSIA

Zorro Zoysia, ranked #1 among Zoysia in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP), is a Zoysia matrella that is vegetatively propagated and genetically stable and uniform. Developed by Dr. M.C. Engelke and Texas A&M University, Zorro Zoysia is distinguished from other Zoysia grasses by its fine texture., high rhizome and tiller density, moderate drought tolerance, shade tolerance and rapid regrowth and recovery from damage. Zorro Zoysia tolerates close and frequent mowing making it applicable for sports fields, greens collars, tee boxes and fairways on golf courses. It is also great for residential and commercial lawns under either full sun or moderate shade in the southern United States. Zorro Zoysia also has sufficient winter hardiness to be used in open ares south of the missouri River Valley and the Appalachian Mountain Range, Zorro Zoysia has good defensive traits with genetic resistance to hunting billbug, fall armyworm, brown patch, yellow patch and Zoysia rust.
