(Mt. Hiba Bamboo, Running Bamboo)

Sporadic light and dark green variegation gives this vigorous hybrid bamboo an ornamental foliage value in gardens, but beware of its tendency to spread. X Hibanobambusa tranquillans is a rare, naturally-occurring intergeneric hybrid resulting from crossing two bamboos from the genera Sasa and Phyllostachys. Around 1900, botanists discovered this new species growing on Mt. Hiba, Japan. The young, emerging foliage can display up to five colors at once, blending the cream...

(Zoysia)

Zoysia comprises about 8 species of perennial, creeping, warm-season grasses from Southeast Asia, China, Japan, and New Zealand. Zoysias are popular fine-textured turf grasses in regions that are too warm for Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis) and other cool-season grasses.

Two zoysias are commonly used: the relatively cold-hardy and vigorous Zoysia japonica (Korean lawn grass), and the finer-textured and somewhat less hardy Zoysia tenuifolia ( Korean velvet...

(Japanese Lawn Grass, Korean Lawn Grass, Zoysia Grass)

Korean or Japanese lawn grass is a perennial, fine-textured, warm-season grass used as turf in hot climates through the transition zones. It is native to southeastern Asia and has better cold tolerance than other zoysias. Japanese lawn grass spreads by stolons (above ground lateral stems) and rhizomes (underground later stems) and forms dense turf. The leaves are slightly hairy and are the most coarse-textured of the zoysias. Japanese lawn grass is normally bright green but turns a distinctive straw...

(Korean Lawngrass, Zoysia Grass)

Empire zoysia turf grass is a perennial, fine-textured, warm-season grass used as turf in hot climates through the transition zones. It is native to southeastern Asia and has better cold tolerance than other zoysias. Empire spreads by stolons (above ground lateral stems) and rhizomes (underground later stems) and forms dense turf. The leaves are slightly hairy and are finer in texture than most coarse-textured Japanese lawn grasses. Empire is normally bright green but turns a distinctive straw color...

(Korean Velvet Grass)

Korean velvet grass is a unique, clumping zoysia used mostly as groundcover and in rock gardens. It is native to Asia, perennial, a warm season grass which grow into the transition zones and the least cold tolerant of the zoysias. Korean velvet grass is very fine-textured, spreads by stolons (above ground lateral stems) and rhizomes (underground later stems) and forms bumpy turf or dwarf mounds of ornamental grass. The leaves are slightly hairy and thread-like. It is normally dark green but turns...
