Tall Fescues by Barenbrug

First introduced in the early 1980’s, turf-type tall fescue has become the number one cool season turf species used in the turf grass transition zones of the U.S. With the ability to establish a deep root system for improved persistence in warm summer temperatures and periods of drought, turf-type tall fescues will tolerate full sun to moderate shade.
