tall fescue

Drought and disease resistant turf.

Over the last two decades, genetic improvements have transformed tall fescue from a rank forage type to an attractive, deep green, uniform turf. Tall fescue is frequently the species of choice for sod production, sports turf, and residential lawns.

Widely adapted to a broad range of soil types and environmental conditions, it is particularly suited to the Transition Zone where heat, humidity, and disease pressures prevail.

Tall fescue performs in shade and sun, tolerates moderate drought, and is resistant to insect attack and several diseases. Although slower to establish than perennial ryegrass, the tall fescues are deep rooted and very persistent.
