Description for Tall Fescue ( 1 Kg )

Festuca arundinacea is a species of grass commonly known as tall fescue. It is a cool-season perennial species of bunchgrass native to Europe.

Established tall fescue lawns are low maintenance and need infrequent mowing and watering, except in very hot summers. Keep the lawn at 2 inches tall and allow the plants to dry out in between deep watering.

Common name(s): Leucopoa, Amphigenes Janka
Flower colours: -
Bloom time: -
Max reacahble height: 0.5 to 0.2 feet
Difficulty to grow:: Easy to grow

Planting and care

Tall fescue establishes best on soil with good drainage and high fertility where pH is 5.5 to 6.5. Work the area well and add in a starter fertilizer to the top few inches of soil.

The rate of sowing is 6 to 8 pounds per 1,000 square feet. Cover the area with a fine layer of sand or soil. Seed needs to be pressed into soil.

Keep evenly moist for 14 to 21 days, at which point you should see your first seedlings.

The plants can now get used to less frequent watering. Mow the grass when it is 3 inches high. Turf grass that is kept less than 3 inches is thicker and more attractive.

Sunlight: Full sun
Soil: Well drained soil
Water: Medium
Temperature: 10 C and above
Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

  • It works as a lawn in either sunny or partially shady areas.
  • Tall fescue in lawns stays green in winter unlike the warm season turf varieties.
  • The plant is available in numerous cultivars, many of which resemble fine fescue but have wider leaf blades.
  • Tall fescue maintenance is a dream for the lazy gardener because it needs infrequent mowing and has low nutrient needs.
  • Tall fescue is a turf grass with remarkable drought and heat stress tolerance.
  • It is a coarse textured, dark green grass with rolled leaves.
  • It spreads by seed primarily and does most of its growth in spring and fall.
  • The grass has deep widely set roots.In spring the plant produces a short panicle 3 to 4 inches long with lance-like spikelets.
  • Tall fescue grass is a bunch grass and established lawns may eventually have die out in some areas, requiring spring reseeding.
