Bluegrasses are the most widely used perennial turfgrass in temperate and subarctic climates. The most distinguishing vegetative features of bluegrasses are the boat-shaped leaf tip and the parallel light lines occurring on either side of the central vein of the leaf blade. They are adapted to well-drained, moist, neutral to slightly acid, fertile soils on sunny or slightly shaded sites. They are also suited for high altitudes in tropical and subtropical climates. Widely used for lawns, golf turf, athletic fields and other general-purpose turfs.
