Q.Zoysia planting

Zone ? where do I find our? | tarnall added on February 26, 2012 | Answered

Some of the details about planting/growing Zoysia grass say it does not do good in colder climates. What parts of the country are they referring to as cold? How cold? I live in then the San Fransisco bay area. Is this a good climate for this type of grass?

In colder climates, zoysia simply goes dormant, turning brown and unsightly looking. The grass performs well in areas where summers reach about 85 degrees F. In your area, the grass should be fine though it will go dormant in winter.
