Jamur Growzone
JaMur® Zoysia is rated as the most drought tolerant of all commercially produced Zoysiagrass cultivars. JaMur®, originally trialed and evaluated as 1062 Zoysia, was selected by David Doguet from the germplasm collection of USDA research geneticist Dr. Jack Murray.

JaMur® is classified as a medium textured zoysia, with an attractive blue-green color. The density of the turf, coupled with an extensive root and rhizome system, give way to excellent recovery characteristics. This making JaMur ® the perfect choice for high visibility and high traffic applications.

Producing less thatch than other like-type zoysiagrass cultivars, JaMur® is considered a much-improved replacement for many other zoysiagrass varieties, including El Toro, Empire™, Palisades™, and Crown.

JaMur® sod production fields can be grown-in and harvested in less than half the time required to produce a single crop of Meyer Zoysia, making it a “Dream come true” for sod producers. Requiring only 1-2 of nitrogen (N) per year with limited water requirements to maintain, JaMur® is rapidly becoming the landscape lawn of choice for many homeowners.
