The highest wear tolerance
All parameters for measuring wear tolerance raises SOMBRERO to the top: Live ground cover, visual merit after wear treatment, recovery, shoot density… First choice for all mixtures for sports and play, whether football, rugby, golf tees and fairways, public playgrounds…
The fineness of leaves and high density allows the use of SOMBRERO for a wide range of purposes including home lawns. One very strong and appreciated feature is the self-repairing capacity due to the extension via rhizomes. Rhizomes are below ground stems spreading horizontally and giving birth to new shoots.
Medium to dark green colour
SOMBRERO is darker than most other Smooth Stalked Meadow Grasses. Perennial Ryegrass is the preferred mixing partner for cooler regions whereas Tall Fescue is the best choice for hot and dry regions.
Scale 1-9, where 9 = best or most pronounced
Performance according to uses. 1-9, 9=best
