perennial ryegrass germinates quickly and can be used as a temporary ground cover while the slower growing bluegrass plants take hold. In warm climates it is used as an overseed to maintain winter green in the lawn after the warm season grasses go dormant, however, it will not survive the summer heat. The ryegrasses are best adapted to moist, cool environments where temperatures are not extreme in the winter or summer. In the United States, the northeastern and northwestern states are well suited to ryegrass. In the transition zone, perennial ryegrass may provide a permanent turfgrass. But in the southern states, both species serve as cool season annuals.
