Bluegrass or fescue - both are cool season grasses.

Suggest you read this thread:

The horticulturists from the University of Illinois Extension Service have this covered -- Suggested Lawn Mixes for Northern Illinois - Lawn Talk- University of Illinois Extension

https://web.extension.illinois.edu/c...rs/020817.html
Quote:
...we might use four cultivars of Kentucky bluegrass mixed with two cultivars of perennial ryegrass in a full sun area. The label might list 'Adelphi,' 'Majestic' and 'Rugby' Kentucky bluegrass with 'Accent' and 'Patriot' perennial ryegrass. Ryegrass should be no more than 20% by weight of the mix.

Would get a landscaper’s mix of rye and fescue, plus Kentucky Blue. Don’t mean to hj the thread but I’m growing grass right now. Wondering if anyone knows if my brand new grass of about three days will survive a frost within the next week? I put shredded straw over it and am keeping it as wet as I can.
