Tall Fescue

Tall Fescue is adapted to the temperate and transitional zones of the United States. Excellent heat and drought tolerance make tall fescue adaptable to the low and medium maintenance situations in the transition zone (such as athletic fields). Genetically improved cultivars have better color and finer leaf texture than the forage type cultivars. Although improvements have been made, the new improved tall fescues are still courser than Kentucky Bluegrass.

Tall fescue should be seeded alone, or in some situations, may be seeded with some Kentucky Bluegrass. If Kentucky Bluegrass is added to tall fescue seed mix, no more than 10% K. Bluegrass by weight should be used. Tall fescue is a bunch type of grass. Thus, to maintain good density, yearly overseeding is recommended.
