Poa pratensis - Smooth stalked meadow grass
Smooth stalked meadow grass has broad, tough leaf blades and is very strong. It thanks its sturdy denseness to its habit of forming determinate stolons (rhizomes). These stolons create a stable turf surface that is not easily damaged by play or high-traffic wear. With use on sports pitches and golf courses, this boosts the tolerance to wear and play. The biggest disadvantage of smooth stalked meadow grass is its slow germination rate. Read more in the following segments.
