Kentucky Bluegrass

Bluegrass Region

Poa pratensis, commonly known as Kentucky bluegrass, smooth meadow-grass, or common meadow-grass, is a perennial species of grass native to practically all of Europe, northern Asia and the mountains of Algeria and Morocco.

Listed in National Geographic Traveler's "50 Best Places of a Lifetime," Kentucky's famed Bluegrass Region is not to be missed. Lexington, Horse Capital of the World, is at the heart of this region of rare beauty, but the region is dotted with charming small towns to explore.
