, 2004 ). During winter dormancy, a dormant brown color gradually occurs after the first autumn frost, and once spring soil temperatures rise above 50 °F, color slowly returns ( Beard, 1973 ). Buffalograss has a light tan to straw-brown color when dormant

below 15 °C, followed by termination of shoot growth when below ≈10 °C ( Wei et al., 2008 )—significant differences among species and cultivars are known. Cultural practices have been used to extend the winter color retention of zoysiagrass in late fall

option for improving zoysiagrass color during dormancy. The use of turf colorants has become popular on golf course fairways and putting greens in the southern United States to provide green color during winter dormancy ( Long, 2006 ). The turf colorants
