Slender creeping red fescue is not as dark in color as its “strong” counterpart, but is typically very dense, can tolerate low mowing (greens height), and offers quick spring green-up. It is also capable of spreading through underground rhizomes, however weaker than that of a strong creeper. Slender creepers make up a part of Barenbrug’s popular ‘Dunes’ Mixture.
Barcrown II slender creeping red fescue is the successor of Barcrown, a variety recognized worldwide. Barcrown II has a dark green color and has exhibited very strong performance in the NTEP Fine Fescue trial. Very dense and fine leaved with a high shoot density, Barcrown II is ideal for close mowing applications and has a very quick green-up in the spring. It mixes well with other fine leaf fescues and has strong shade tolerance.
