WHAT IS ZOYSIA TENUIFOLIA?

Zoysia Tenuifolia is known by many Common Names including;

  • Korean Velvet Grass
  • No Mow Grass
  • Mascarene Grass
  • Temple Grass

Zoysia Tenuifolia is mainly utilised as a ground cover in Oriental Gardens, among rocks and ponds, and makes a spectacular architectural specimen as it can also grow over rocks and other structures in the garden. It is also used to great effect when planted between pavers.

Anyone who has visited the Hunter Valley Gardens will tell you it looks magnificent in the oriental setting.

Zoysia Tenuifolia is also a great lawn and sloping bank grass species, but is much more appealing when used as an ornamental grass ground cover, as it possesses an unusual clumping or mounding appearance.  It makes an excellent ground cover for Japanese Themed Gardens where you want to simulate a moss style landscape or where trees make establishing a conventional lawn difficult.

Zoysia Tenuifolia is mainly used as a ground cover because of its tendency to grow in an undulating way, creating ripples and small hills right up to the trunks of trees in deep shade. Because they have such good shade tolerance, newly established Zoysias will easily adjust to shading as the surrounding Shrubs and trees mature.  

Zoysia grasses are fairly drought-tolerant and can remain green for four to five weeks without water, even on a sand-based soil. They cope so well with drought because they in-roll their leaves to conserve moisture and develop a very deep root system.

As can be seen in the Graph below, Zoysia Tenuifolia really does have the competition covered.

Zoysias do not tolerate more than an ocassional water-logging, so make sure that your soil has good internal draining. They will tolerate a wide range of soil types from Acid to Neutral pH.

Because Zoysias form such a very dense lawn, it has a greater resistance to invasion by weeds than other lawn grasses, such as green couch. Zoysia tenuifolia has a very fine texture and is dark green in colour.  

The slow growth rate of Zoysia tenuifolia reduces the need for mowing and its nitrogen requirement is lower than that of most grasses. Spreading is by rhizomes (underground runners).

The slow growth rate of Zoysia does mean that damaged areas take more time to repair, but because Zoysia leaves have such high silica levels, it makes Zoysia extremely wear-tolerant, compared with other warm-season turf grasses. 

Also, because it is a slow growing variety of grass, commercial growing of Zoysia is a more expensive exercise, but in my opinion, this is outweighed by the greatly reduced frequency of mowing. 

Zoysias can tolerate much lower soil fertility than other grasses, such as green couch, but will respond to a nitrogen fertiliser by faster growth and a deeper green colour.

I would recommend slow-release fertilisers to deliver the nitrogen required by Zoysias.

Really Low Temperatures are about the only thing that has the slightest impacton Zoysia tenuifolia. But, as can be seen in the photograph below, it will survive even under the harshest of Winter conditions.

You will receive well established Korean Velvet Grass. They will be sent bare-rooted, with a little soil, to keep postage costs down to a minimum, and will be ready to plant as soon as you receive them.

Please note that we prefer to post our Grasses on a Monday or Tuesday, to avoid the possibility of the Plants having to sit in a Postal Storage Shed over the weekend. 

We can however, send them by Express Post if they are required urgently.

WA / TAS / NT and overseas....due to quarantine laws I will not be able to post these plants to you.
