Abstract

Creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera L.) is a cool-season species commonly used on golf courses. The name is derived from the vigorous stolons that develop at the surface of the ground and initiate new plants from the nodes. Stolon formation and internode elongation allow creeping bentgrass the ability to spread horizontally. The aggressive lateral spread makes creeping bentgrass well suited for high traffic, heavy use areas.
