Lists: Grass names

January 5, 2006: Issue 121

Here’s a change in SIM style: We’re closing up all turfgrass and lawngrass names, even when they include a proper name, to be consistent with industry usage. (Keep the capital letter from the proper name.) Some examples:

Bahiagrass
Bermudagrass
Zoysiagrass
