How would it work in the desert climate like Phoenix that presents some turf challenges?- Very hot in the summer- Mild winter but some frost or occasional hard freeze possible- Mostly heavy clay soil- recycled water with high salt content.Does the paspalum go dormant in the winter like bermuda? Would overseeding be necessary?As far as rough goes, bermuda rough is not particularly fun.TomPaspalum does go dormant. Dormancy is comparable or a bit longer than most hybrid Bermudas, if I recall correctly. UofA's turf program is working on overseeding protocols with limited success. My experience in Puerto was that it was patchy when grown to rough length. Better prospects of getting the club on the ball than in common Bermuda rough.
