Have any of you ever had dormant tttf in the summer? If so, how did you water enough to get it alive but still keep it in dormancy? How long can tttf be dormant? From my experience, once tttf goes brown it doesn't come back. Grass affected by brown patch is supposed to still be alive at the crown and able to come back However, without leaves doing photosynthesis, how can the crown and roots stay alive? Tttf is touted for its drought resistance. That's great if you can keep it alive for a few years so the roots can grow long enough.
