Tall fescue is a deep rooted, cool season grass. Most fescues possess dwarf-type growing habits and reduced vertical growth, and are very dense.
The extensive root system can offer good drought tolerance depending on soil conditions. This turf grass has a root potential depth of 3-4 feet. Tall fescue does produce short rhizomes but has a bunch-type growth habit. Tall fescue is adapted to a wide range of soil and climatic conditions, but performs best on well drained soils. Tall fescue demonstrates good shade tolerance and can remain green from early spring to late fall under irrigated conditions. Recommended usage: residential, parks, cemeteries, commercial property and golf courses.
