  • Most recent low-growing tall fescue introduction from Barenbrug USA

    Barrington II was developed from parent material that was selected for excellent traffic tolerance in the mid-Atlantic. Along with this trait came other traits attributable to that area; strong performance in hot, humid summers, great drought tolerance, and drought recovery. Barrington II also exhibits very strong resistance to brown patch and gray snow mold with early spring green-up.


    Featuring a low growing, compact growth habit, medium dark green color, and very good uniformity, Barrington II is well suited for sod production, golf course, park and recreational turf, green belts, residential and commercial tall fescue turf.
