Blue Dawn (Brunswick grass)

Name: Blue Dawn (Paspalum nicorae)

Rhizomatous perennial grass. It is very palatable to livestock and wildlife and is becoming an important pasture grass on sandy and friable loamy surface soils in higher rainfall sub-tropical climates, replacing kikuyu in many grazing situations. It has been successfully used as a ground cover on roadsides, sporting ovals, lawns and in high wear areas.

Blue dawn is cold and drought tolerant. It may brown off after heavy frost but greens up during warmer winter weather and recovers rapidly in spring with good rainfall following dry periods. It is tolerant of moderate shade and has the ability to suppress weeds such as blue heliotrope.

Minimum Annual
750 mm.
Sowing rate: Pasture 3 to 4 kg/ha
