Festuca Rossa (Festuca Rubra)
It has a more vigorous creeping habit than some similar species which can help to create a dense, hardwearing turf or sward.
These shallow creeping roots help it to remain green even in drier soils.
Often used in landscaping or amenity mixtures, where toughness and durability over a fine finish is required.
Other more delicate species like Slender Creeping Red Fescue maybe used where a finer finish is required, for example in lawns.
It can also be used to create a tougher sward in agricultural mixtures, such as horse pastures. A very persistent perennial grass species.
Its creeping growth habit allows it to create a dense, tough sward.
The creeping rhizomes can also access moisture in dry conditions, meaning it can stay greener throughout the summer.
Quantity of seeds: 35-40 gr/m2.
