Warm season grasses typically grow actively in the spring and summer, will generally have attractive coloring in the fall, and will go dormant in the winter. Cool season grass experiences it’s period of active growth in the late winter or early spring. They will bloom in the early part of the summer, and then enter a period of dormancy or slow growth later in the summer into the fall. A number of grasses of this type are evergreen.
