Bluestar provides high-quality turf with a beautiful dark green color and excellent density, which slows weed invasion and reduces the need for herbicides. It has very good resistance to both stem rust and dollar spot. An aggressive root builder, Bluestar withstands heat and drought and performs well in sun or light shade. Bluestar has a low-growth habit that reduces scalping and clippings when mowed. When used in a program of high fertility and manged soil ph, it will spread and withstand wear, traffic and mechanical damage.
