Other names (PBR name, trademark, breeder code)

Greanleaf Park™ (formerly trade marked by Beverina Estate).



The medium-textured turfgrass which cab be managed at low cutting heights is dark green in colour has a high shoot density and horizontal growth habit that provides a flat, firm and dense turf surface. The variety has a rapid lateral extension growth rate of stoloniferous growth. Suitable for residential lawns, parks and community sports fields. The variety was previously used in bowling greens in New South Wales, for its superior pest resistance during wet periods and its ability to be mown short. The variety was not used as a golf or bowling greens variety in Queensland because it accumulated a higher level of thatch in (sub)tropical conditions.



Other comments

Best on sandy loams, pH 5.0 to 7.5 preferred. When used in New South Wales within a golf or acceptable golf green, the variety can be mown to 5 mm. Can produce high levels of seed heads under low fertility conditions. Seed head production is low when well fertilized. Greenlees Park was selected by the late Rod J. Riley from Concord in 1965. It is difficult to obtain a 'true to type' source of the orginal variety since the time it was first selected. Turf growers may have stock that is similar or has been called Greenlees Park. The primary importance for a purchaser is to identify if the turf is of good quality and most importantly uniform in appearance i.e. does not contain high levels of contamination or variation. Beverina Estate, who was one of the first toundertaken multiplication and commercialise the variety, trademarked the grass as Greenleaf Park™.
