Lolium perenne

Perennial ryegrass

Bred for leaf disease resistance and turf quality

Quick facts

Thrive (is-PR 469) was bred specifically for leaf disease resistance and superior overall quality. It produces a lush turf with high tiller density, fine leaf texture and dark green color. Thrive has demonstrated wear tolerance and early spring greenup.

It is endophyte enhanced for natural resistance to surface feeding insects, subsequently reducing vulnerability to disease and stress.


Thrive is well adapted for use in the Northeast, Transition and Pacific regions as a permanent turf and can be combined into mixtures where perennial ryegrass is an accepted component, used in blends or as a straight. It's designed for improving areas of extensive use and drought renovation. Thrive is an excellent choice for locations where diseases such as Gray leaf spot and brown patch are prevalent.
