Annual Ryegrass (Loilum multiflorum)
Annual ryegrass is a specialist grass seed that is used in mixtures where germination is required in the fastest possible time and at cold temperatures. For this reason, it is often used in ‘emergency repair’ grass seed mixtures. As the name suggests, it is an annual species, which means that after one year it will die off. Therefore, if it is being used for a permanent fix it should always be blended with perennial ryegrass grass seed to give lasting results.
- Annual species = A plant which completes its life cycle in one year before dying.
- Biennial species = A plant which completes its life cycle in two years before dying.
- Perennial species = A plant that will live longer than two years, possibly indefinitely
