Zenith Zoysia Seed

Zenith Zoysia Seed Super-Sod Logo

Only Zenith Zoysia lawns can be grown from sod and seed!


In Zones 8 and lower (i.e. colder), it's too late in the season to have success planting Zenith Zoysia seeds. Wait to plant until spring, after danger of last spring frost. With that in mind, we have suspended Zenith seed sales until February 1, 2015, so please check back with us then! It is best to purchase fresh seed closer to planting time to get the best germination rate.
