Sheep Fescue

By chandra singh

Less dense and generally better suited for low naturalized sites, Sheep Fescue is different than most turf-type Fescues. Sheep Fescue will not form a dense, sod-forming turf but provides compact plants with upright foliage and red-purple seed heads throughout the grass surface. The foliage has a slight bluish cast during the spring growth period. Sheep Fescue does well as a nurse with native grasses and wildflowers, in parks, and other naturalized areas where maintenance and traffic will be minimal.
