|Here in the northwest's high mountain desert...we put in a xeric-scaped yard that has worked great! Thanks to High Country Gardens.com We have nothing but Hardy, drought resistant, native plants, shubs, trees, and flowers landscaped beautifully throughout river rock. We do have a 30x30 patch of Legacy Buffalo Grass that is essentially pollen free, robust, spreads quickly with vigorous and inviting deep green lawn that withstands heavy foot traffic, pest and disease.
Looks great and we only have to water once every three weeks vs. three times a week for the Kentucky Blue Grass we used to have...to maintain a sad, barely green, easily tromped to dirt, yard.
I think High Country Gardens has a grass for humid areas of the US as well. One is called Prestige Buffalo Grass. They have a free catalog you can order from their website. Good luck!
