Can the seed from hybrid St. Augustine and Zoysia varietes actually germinate when it is cut and deposited back into the grass? I know Floratam will produce a good amount of seed stalks a couple times a year. And others even more. If some of this seed does germinate, I would assume that new grass plant that is produced would be one of the parents of the hybrid. If this were to theoretically happen, would the new non-hybrid ever actually provide competition for the hybrid, or is the hybrid way too aggressive to ever lose ground to the parent? This just dawned on me when a customer was talking about his Empire Zoysia the other day. He said the company doing the pest control put down a pre-emergent and that he was concerned that his zoysia seed that his Empire produced might not germinate. I had never given much thought to it, since there was no reason to need the seed it produced to ever germinate. But then I thought about it, and if it did germinate, it would be a variety that you did not want anyway.
