In this photo from my yard you can see the distinct difference that characterizes the growth cycle of these two categories of grass.  At the end of April the cool season bluegrasses and fescues typically used for residential lawns in our region are actively growing and bright green.  The warm season native prairie grasses such as buffalo and gramma are still mostly dormant.
