Yukon Bermuda Grass Seeds

Performance

Yukon has expanded the bermudagrass planting zone - it is the turfgrass professional’s top choice for projects from the Equator through the transition zones of the world. In trials, it has shown excellent turf quality and winter hardiness at both 0.5 inch and 1.5 inch mowing heights. Yukon can be seeded on new projects, as well as interseeded into existing turf of similar quality. With highest ratings for turfgrass quality, color, density and texture, Yukon Bermudagrass is the best choice for turf managers, wherever bermudagrass is grown. Additionally, with its excellent winter survival and cold tolerance, Yukon becomes a stand-alone choice for transition zone plantings. Yukon blends well with other turf-type bermudagrasses and is an excellent choice for golf course tees and fairways, sports turf, parks and landscapes.

      Works well if you can get it started

      I originally tried Yukon for a southwestern Missouri site with poor soil and poor turf during August / September drought. Only a little of the first planting grew, but where it took hold, the Yukon is a very nice bermuda grass, dark green, short, and fine. We did a second planting with more care, but none of it took hold. Then I carefully planted some in greenhouse trays and raised it with considerable care. It is very slow to gain size. I set it out as plugs in a portion of my sandy yard in Michigan (zone 5) where august burn-out is a problem. Some of it took hold, and works well, surviving winter and spreading at a moderate rate, not taking over as bad as the giant northern-acclimated bermuda that also grows here. Wish it was easier to start. It handles heat and drought very well.
