Creeping Red Fescue

Creeping red fescue is a dense, sod-forming grass that extablishes and spreads vigorously on most soil types, including well-fertilized subsoils. Its solid root system and thick, fine top growth make creeping red fescue an excellent grass for streambank or grass waterway protection. It can also serve as a bottom grass in long-term pastures and is noted for its extednded growth period and retained nutritional value in the fall. Its low-growing habit makes it difficult to cut and unsuitable for hay.
