It likely grows in poor soil as advertised, however, I had to really prep my soil to get seeds to grow. It take still alot more work than I had in mind. Still where I worked hard on ground prep., it is a nice green. only time will tell if it returns thick next year after this draught ends.
I was concerned that the product would be "stale", but I found that its germination was tested nine months ago ... giving me confidence that my efforts wouldn't be wasted. As seeds go, the germination and noxious weed content was above average. While it "came up" in 10 days as advertised, haven't yet had a good look at the grass. But from what I've seen, I think I'm going to like it. Next three weeks will tell.
Read about Black Beauty grass seed in an article in the NYTimes where it was recommended. Used it both to overseed areas and to seed a bare area. Both areas have done well filling in with lush green grass. So far seems to be better than the seed blends I have tried in the past.
