Empire™ Zoysia is also known as zoysia japonica. Empire Zoysia is an excellent choice for a drought resistant turf.
Empire™ Zoysia has a dark green colour that is retained all year round. The texture of the leaf is wide and coarse, but relatively soft compared to other Zoysia varieties. Excellent drought resistance once established. Empire is a very slow growing grass, making it a fantastic choice for small gardens.
