Princess 77 Bermuda Grass (Now Arden 15) is the first dense, fine textured F1 hybrid Bermuda grass variety to be available in seeded form. Princess 77 seed is produced much like hybrid seed corn, but instead of two inbred parent lines, two self-incompatible but cross-fertile parent clones are planted in alternating rows. The specific combining ability of these two elite parent clones is what makes Princess 77 the first seeded Bermuda grass that is competitive with the vegetative hybrid Bermuda grasses for turf grass quality, leaf texture, color, and density.

Characteristics of Princess 77:
  •     High tolerance to sun, drought and traffic
  •     Outstanding drought tolerance
  •     Dark green color, medium fine leaf texture
  •     High leaf density
  •     Good fall color retention
  •     Higher overall turf quality than all commercial seeded varieties in U.S. and International tests

Establishing Princess 77

Princess 77 should be planted when soil temperatures are consistently above 65 F (18 C). For best results, take a soil sample and follow fertility recommendations prior to planting. Care must be taken not to cover the seed with too much soil; no more than 1/8 inches (3 mm) covering over the seed is advised.

After seeding, soil moisture in the root zone must be maintained for about 1 to 2 weeks, germination may begin within 7 to 10 days. After the new turf is established, less frequent, deep watering is desirable.

Maintaining Princess 77

No more than 1/3 of the leaf blade should be removed per mowing. Recommended mowing height is 3/16 to 1 inch (5 to 25 mm). Full coverage may be attained in 4 to 6 weeks with proper management. Fertilize with to 1 lb/1,000 sq ft actual N (0.25 to 0.5 kg /100 sq m) per month of growing season for optimum performance, fertilization may be reduced by if clippings are returned.

This is a dense hybrid - verticut at least once per growing season during periods of active growth. Winter overseeding may be done for year round green color, but is generally not recommended on turf less than 6 months old.

    Superior Choice Grass

    In '08 renters showed neglect & much Lawn damage which lead me 2 renovate the Lawn. Intense labor. gutting out the Adobe Soil that was compacted like a brick down 2 the construction debris; in the Summers Heat & Humidity for 3 months. So after much research, I chose Princess grass. So soft I could place a baby on it. For me,dense & slow growing grass works. Less mowing compared to the neighbors aggressive St. Augustine. the neighbors envy my lawn, and to feel it barefoot is SOoo Soft! The color is gorgeous: bright happy green always. No, I will never choose anything else! Its better than Emerald Zoysia & that's an awesome choice. This grass works for my needs. now of coarse heavy trampling & terrible care wont help. but do the right steps & you'll be so pleased!!! ive noticed different companys are packaging this. Just make sure there are no inert weeds & there is no mixed seeds. Pure bred Princess Grass is Beautiful!
