Festuca trachyphylla
Hard Fescue is a cool-season, perennial bunch grass. It is used in shady lawn mixes and as a cover crop for native grasses and forbs. It is more drought tolerant than other sod forming cool-season grasses and works well in erosion control mixes for slope stabilization, roadsides, ditch banks etc. It is best adapted to Northern or Mountain areas. Hard Fescue has a blue-green color, is the only fescue which is salt tolerant and can not be mown as low as many other lawn grasses. In fact, Hard Fescue is best as a low maintenance grass with very little mowing or fertilization. It can be seeded in the Spring or Fall.
