|Common applications: This grass is for locations that are not commonly irrigated and receive full sun (ex. roadside landscaping), or blend with a medium-textured seed for lawn applications.
Germination: Germinates in 3 weeks.
Fertilization + Irrigation: Low maintenance, little fertilization and irrigation needed.
Color: Medium green.
Sun: Prefers full sun.
Weather tolerance: Excellent drought and heat tolerance, but doesn’t like cold winters.
Traffic: Moderate hardiness to foot traffic.
Texture: Has a coarse wheat texture.
pH preference: Does well in low pH soil.
Mowing: Mow to around 3-4 inches, but never cut off more than 1/3 of the blade height at a time.
Of Note: Tall fescue looks very different from other grass varietals, so blending is not as common. However, perennial ryegrass can be added for quick germination.
