What is Zoysia Tenuifolia?
Zoysia Tenuifolia is known by many Common Names including;
- Korean Velvet Grass
- No Mow Grass
- Mascarene Grass
- Temple Grass
- Minmow Grass
- Petting 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 that it looks absolutely magnificent in the oriental setting.
The Oriental Garden draws its influence from primarily Japanese and Korean gardens and is a place of harmony, balance and serenity.
With the one of the largest lawns of Zoysia tenuifolia (Korean Velvet Grass) in Australia, some of the other flowers and plants include; Cloud Trees which are a native Lilly Pilly species, Syzygium australe “Tiny Trev” and “Bush Christmas”, Salvia, Liriope along with various topiaries which are created using Buxus japonica or Japanese Box. The stunning Japanese Iris or Iris ensata grows along the water’s edge producing stunning purple/blue flowers. Make sure you don’t miss the superb late Winter and Spring display of Azaleas, Camellias and Magnolias.
This garden is precisely trimmed and manicured with natural curves making it flow among its surroundings.
One of its main features is a two-story traditional Japanese pagoda surrounded by natural Australian granite. The pond is home to many colourful and beautiful Koi.
One of the best places to view the Oriental Garden is from the top of the Italian Grotto, one of the most stunning vantage points in Hunter Valley Gardens.

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, Korean Velvet Grass really does have the competition covered.
KOREAN VELVET GRASS -
Zoysia Tenuifolia does not tolerate more than an ocassional water-logging, so make sure that your soil has good internal draining.
Your Zoysia will tolerate a wide range of soil types from Acid to Neutral pH.
Because Zoysia forms such a very dense lawn, it has a greater resistance to invasion by weeds than other lawn grasses, such as couch, buffalo or Kikuyu.
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 couch, buffalo and Kikuyu, but will respond to a nitrogen fertiliser by faster growth and a deeper green colour.
We recommend Dinofert Granules and or a slow-release fertilisers to deliver the nitrogen required by Zoysias.
Really Low Temperatures and Waterlogging are about the only things that has the slightest impact on Zoysia tenuifolia. But, as can be seen in the photograph below, it will survive even under the harshest of Winter conditions.

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.
