Cool Season Grasses look green and healthy through seasonal frosts

Cool season grasses grow most vigorously in the cooler months of spring and fall, when temperatures fall between 60-75 degrees. Cool season grasses thrive in areas that experience cold, freezing winters and hot summers. They are an excellent choice for those living in New England, the Upper Midwest, the High Plains and the Pacific Northwest.
