Empire Zoysia Variety Description
Empire Zoysia was discovered in Brazil, and unlike other Zoysia varieties, has proven its ability to thrive in hot, humid conditions. Because of its drought tolerance, Empire requires less water than most other grasses and is well suited to areas where water use is severely regulated. It also requires less fertilizer. Empire has performed well in sandy and clay soil types with aggressive growth from its runners and rhizomes, but can be mowed with a standard rotary mower due to its broader leaf and open growth habit. Because of its dense growth habit, weeds are rarely a problem in healthy stands.
