I personally have used Winterplex blend from Scott's Turf Seed, Inc (bought from Rose Agriseed) and also Sabre III from Outsidepride.com. None are as dark as the darkest kentucky bluegrass but certainly much improved from the lime green of wild poa trivialis. I have also used primo maxx which help the poa triv take on a nice dark color by late spring. You will want to kill off any existing poa triv before you plant improved types and it will probably be best to incorporate them into a blend. Not only is the color different but they are much more fine bladed than the "rough stalk" of wild types. I use these in wet, somewhat shady areas.
