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.
