Canadian Blue Fescue

Canadian Blue Fescue™ is a very drought tolerant, low maintenance grass, with a very fine leaf texture. Environmentally sensitive sites and low traffic turf areas can both benefit by using Canadian Blue Fescue™. Fescue hybrids have been traditionally viewed as ornamental grasses. Canadian Blue Fescue™ is well adapted to a mown turf situation or can be left to grow tall for a more natural appeal. Canadian Blue Fescue™ looks beautiful in home lawn settings, roadsides, medians, open space, golf course roughs, and blends well with native grasses and wildflowers. Canadian Blue Fescue™ will change color, turning a blue-gray color during 90°F+ heat and high stress periods. Canadian Blue Fescue™ is very shade tolerant, often found in the dry shade of trees. This mix of fine-leafed fescues perform best on well-drained soils where light irrigation is available. Like other fine fescues, these varieties will not perform well in wet areas. They are the most drought tolerant of the fescues and of the cool season grasses, including ryegrass, bluegrass, tall fescue and bentgrass. Under severe drought conditions, these fine fescues are survivors.
