Zeon Zoysia® is another of the improved zoysia cultivars chosen for its superior genetic characteristics by Blade Runner Farms. Discovered by David Doguet, this fine-textured progeny came from selections collected by USDA breeder Jack Murray, in Kobe, Japan. Zeon was engineered and developed to provide the landscape industry with a superior fine-bladed zoysia, with increased shade tolerance, low incidence of thatch production, and an accelerated rate of spread. In addition, unlike Emerald Zoysia, Zeon is extremely low-maintenance and can be mowed using a standard rotary type of machine.
