Bowie possesses medium green color, fine leaf texture, good turf density, and a low growth habit. Bowie has improved color and height uniformity along with quicker establishment, winter hardiness, and earlier spring green up. It is adapted to a wide geographical range, but performs especially well in the northern part of the Buffalograss range. Bowie is not recommended for shady areas and results may vary above 5000 ft.  It requires 6-8 hours of daily sunlight and prefers heavy or clay based soils. Sandy soils may require amendments to aid establishment.

Buffalograss is known for its low water usage, winter hardiness and low vertical growth habit. These traits reduce labor, irrigation, mowing, and fertilization costs. Bowie was developed by the Native Turf Group in cooperation with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.

Use Bowie Buffalograss as an economical warm season turf, soil stabilizer or in any other utility application where low maintenance characteristics are desired.
