Baronial is an outstanding smooth-stalked meadow grass variety. The variety has a splendid performance in summer and a survival instinct in cold winters. Baronial is an excellent choice for mixtures in gardens, sports fields, tees and fairways.


Baronial is a sports turf Poa pratensis variety suitable for:

  • General landscaping
  • Turf production
  • Golf courses: tees and fairways
  • Cricket grounds and tennis courts
  • Football and rugby pitches


Colour and leaf texture
Medium-dark green coloured with medium broad leaves.


Partner varieties in mixtures
Baronial has been extensively tested in private trials at Barenbrug Research in the Netherlands, France and Northern Europe (e.g. Finland). For landscape, fairway and tee applications, Baronial mixes well with all Festuca rubra and Lolium perenne species, and in cold areas preferably with winter hard varieties such as Bargreen, Bardiva (Frc) and Bartwingo or Barlennium (Lp).

Its good performance under heavy-duty use allows Baronial to be mixed with other sports-type varieties such as Bareuro, Barfriso, Barminton and Barlennium (Lp) or Barimpala and the very fine-leaved Barhelene (Pp).
