(Blue Fescue, Field Fescue)

The genus Festuca comprises over 300 species and even more cultivated varieties. These may have annual or perennial life cycles, and spreading or bunched habits, depending on the given species. Fescues are broadly distributed across the globe, but most exist in North Temperate regions. Many species are grown as ornamental grasses for the lawn and garden, or for agricultural purposes, but many more exist as common weeds.

Fescues require full to part sun and can tolerate a wide range of soil types,...

Fescue ‘Southern Gold’ is a tall fescue turfgrass seed blend developed with varieties to impart heat, drought, insect and brown patch disease resistance for the warmer areas of the transition zone. The tall fescue species are native to Europe. Tall fescue is very popular turf due to good color in the spring and fall and easy of establishment from seed. Though it is a cool-season turf, it is best used in the warmer areas of transition zones and is commonly used to over-seed warm season grasses in...

(Tall Fescue)

A dense clump-forming perennial, tall fescue is a durable turf grass that grows best in regions with cool to moderate temperatures. It has very dense, soft blades that make it a good lawn grass for playgrounds and athletic fields. Native populations exist in open fields and meadows across Europe and North Temperate Asia. Unlike other turf grasses, it does not spread via rhizomes, so it tidily stays put.

Tall fescue has deep roots that allow it to withstand seasonal drought. It has fine, deep...

(Field Fescue)

Native to southwestern Europe, this fescue species is a densely-clumping perennial with curved, green, narrow leaves. In size and shape it resembles Festuca ovina which many gardeners use as a small ornamental grass in beds and borders. Festuca arvernensis is adapted to hot, dry conditions.

Fescues require full to part sun and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, but most prefer average, slightly acidic soil with good drainage. Ornamental species, like the evergreen blue fescue (Festuca glauca)...

(Hard Fescue)

This species is a perennial spreading grass of short stature notable for its long thin leaves. It forms patches, spreading by underground stems. Native to southern Europe, it flowers in summer.

This fescue requires full to part sun and can tolerate a wide range of soil types, but prefers average, slightly acidic soil with good drainage. It can be used in sunny borders, containers or rock gardens and looks best when planted in masses.

(Blue Fescue)

Forming low bristling domes of showy evergreen foliage, this clumping, cool-season grass hails from Europe. It slowly forms a rounded hummock of somewhat stiff, fine-textured leaves that are usually blue- or gray-green, with some forms approaching silver. Their texture contrasts beautifully with that of coarse leaves and large stones. In midsummer this little blue fescue bears plumy clusters of fine beige to gray, purple-tinted flowers on erect stems. They create a soft and breezy look. Some gardeners...
