Partner varieties in mixtures
Palladio has been extensively tested in private trials at Barenbrug Research in the Netherlands, France and Italy. For landscape, fairway and tee applications, Palladio mixes well with Poa pratensis and Lolium perenne species, and in warm dry areas preferably with drought-tolerant varieties such as Barimpala. More continental areas are best covered with partners such as Bariris and Baronial (Pp) and Barminton or Barfriso (Lp).
