What color is Blue Grass?
Also question is, is grass really blue?
Like many plants, most species of grass produce a bright pigment called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll absorbs blue light (high energy, short wavelengths) and red light (low energy, longer wavelengths) well, but mostly reflects green light, which accounts for your lawn's color.
Subsequently, question is, what kind of grass is bluegrass? Unlike bunch-forming grasses, such as tall fescue and ryegrass, Kentucky bluegrass is a self-spreading, sod-forming grass. Once established, it spreads readily via underground stems (known as rhizomes) to form a dense, thick turf.
Correspondingly, why do they call it bluegrass?
Kentucky Bluegrass is not named for its leaves because they're always green. The Kentucky part of Kentucky Bluegrass came about as a result of Europeans naming the northern part of modern-day Kentucky the Bluegrass Region, because of the huge meadows of blue-flowered grass that grew there.
What is Kentucky bluegrass?
The Bluegrass region (Shawnee: Eskippakithiki) is a geographic region in the U.S. state of Kentucky. The Bluegrass region is characterized by underlying fossiliferous limestone, dolomite, and shale of the Ordovician geological age. Hills are generally rolling, and the soil is highly fertile for growing pasture.
