‘Gruening’ alpine bluegrass (pdf file)
‘Gruening’ alpine bluegrass was released by the Alaska Plant Materials Center (PMC) in 1986 (Wright, 1991c). The species is widely adapted throughout Alaska. As the name implies, the species is adapted to high elevation areas.
It also performs well on sites drier than those tolerated by Kentucky bluegrass. Seed availability is limited. Before this cultivar is included in a planting plan, the availability of the seed should be researched.
