Zoysia lawn with reddish blades?

plane928November 6, 2012

After a long rain, my zoysia grass looks yellow in color. I've noticed now under closer inspection that once it dries the blades are actually pinkish-reddish color. Not sure if this is "red thread" or some other sort of disease. Attached photo was taken about 6 hours after it had rained this morning. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Where do you live?

If you are talking about that little reddish shoot is not a real problem. It is a young shoot born into a cold world and a sign your grass is about to go dormant for winter.
