Cavalier™ Zoysia

Cavalier™ Zoysia was developed by Dr. Milt Engelke and Texas A&M University.

Cavalier™ Zoysia is distinguished from other zoysiagrass by its fine texture, long, narrow leaves, with low rhizome, but high-density stolon production. It has good to excellent salt tolerance, and good shade tolerance.

Cavalier™ Zoysia is resistant to the fall armyworm and the tropical sod webworm. Cavalier™ is intermediate in its growth and recovery rate. Cavalier™ has good-excellent winter hardiness and will persist in regions north of Kansas, Missouri, and Southern Illinois as well as in the southern states. Cavalier™ is rated number one in the NTEP trials over 3 years.

Cavalier™ Zoysia will find its primary utility in residential lawns, golf course fairways, and tee boxes, and in parks, sports fields, or other recreational areas.

Cavalier™ Zoysia has been identified by several golf course architects as the future grass of choice for golf course fairways in the cool season- warm season transition zone. A patented variety, unauthorized propagation is prohibited.
