Description

Festuca arizonica
Arizona Fescue is a cool season, perennial, bunchgrass that grows in high elevation evergreen forests and meadows throughout the Rocky Mountain Range. It has dense, thin stems, with yellow flowers in late Spring and a coarse, dense fibrous root system making it rather drought tolerant. It is most commonly found on thin soils, and grows best in semi-shade with low levels of water and fertility. Arizona Fescue requires a minimum of 150 frost free days to grow successfully. It is a relatively short plant, at about 2 feet tall, with bright green leaves which are attractive looking and very palatable to wildlife in Summer. Arizona Fescue is useful for controlling soil erosion and improving rangelands. The variety Redondo was selected for exceptional seedling vigor and extensive fibrous root system and is generally used for reclamation throughout the Westwood early yields. This variety should be used where early maturity is needed and as a single species for hay.
