Warm season grass requires a minimum 55- 65 degrees in order to germinate and will germinate fastest at temperatures of 70-75 degrees. Ground temperature is normally lower than air temperatures which means you can sow warm season grasses when air temperatures are between 80-85 degrees and stil have good results. Best wishes with your lawn.
