Gentle person: We reside in Yorba Linda and in recent years summere's heat has increased from NOAA published norms. Please provide the temperature range Agrostis Pallens tolerates. Please advise temperatures / months this grass will go dormant (turn brown). Thank you.

thank you for reading the blog and your possibility of using some of the suggested remedies for "Considering Using a Drought and Foot Traffic Tolerant Grass?"  
The blog was written primarily for gardeners in Contra Costa County in Northern California. In that you are in Orange County in Southern California, our knowledge and recommendations may not be appropriate. I suggest you contact the UC Master Gardener Program of Orange County and pose that question to them for appropriate and local advice. The Help Desk / HotLine of the Orange County MGs can be reached via email with information on the web at for more specific, localized information on various turf grasses.  
Again, thanks for reading the blog and hopefully its information and Organe County's MG Hotline can provide you with a specific, localized response.
