EMPIRE Turf is a superior performer among warm season turfgrasses. EMPIRE thrives in demanding tropical climates, yet also exhibits excellent cold hardiness. EMPIRE will grow in sand, sandy loam, clay or muck. You can expect EMPIRE to retain fall color longer than many other turf selections and to greenup more quickly in the spring. EMPIRE is a durable and versatile turf variety but as with the selection of any turfgrass, you should understand your own unique local growing conditions prior to purchasing and installing EMPIRE or any other variety.
