Strong Creeping Red Fescue (Festuca Rubra Rubra Gunuina)
Strong Creeping Red Fescue (Festuca rubra rubra gunuina) is able to sustain itself between a pH value of 5 to 8.5. Aggressive on soil clays it can also dominate on dry, coarse, sandy soils. Slower than Perennial Ryegrass to germinate it is still quite thick and because of long rhizomes it quickly fills open and weak areas. Fairly resistant to drought and with some shade tolerance it will persist well in conditions of poor fertility.
