Creeping Red Fescue Grass Uses

Creeping Red Fescue GrassCreeping Red Fescue grass seed is widely planted for turf grass in the transition and Northern cool season areas. Creeping Red Fescue is a fine bladed grass with medium to dark green color. It is easily established from seed and spreads with rhizomes with a "creeping" growth habit.

While it persists in cool season climates,  Creeping Red Fescue is not as cold tolerant as Kentucky Bluegrass or Creeping Bentgrass. Its major use is for dry shaded areas as either a pure stand or as a mixture in other grass seed mixtures such as Bluegrass seed, creeping bent grass seed and Perennial Ryegrass seed. Even though it is one of the best grasses for use in shade... it will tolerate full sun conditions although this could require more water. Creeping Red Fescue is used extensively in all types of turf areas including parks, roadsides, lawns, fairways, cemeteries, airfields, and other turf areas.

Creeping Red Fescue seed can also used to overseed warm-season turfs such as Bermudagrass. It grows best in well drained sites and in droughty, infertile soils. It does not tolerate wet soils or high fertilization rates, including highly fertile soils. -- Pernille, Evergreen, & Boreal are the more common varieties.

Types of Creeping Red Fescue Grass

There are two different types of creeping red fescue - Rubra rubra and Rubra trichophylla. The Rubra rubra variety is called a "strong creeping" type with 56 chromosomes compared to 42 in the other type. These varieties of creeping red fescue both spread via rhizomes(underground creeping stems) and stolons (above ground creeping stems) which allow them to spread and repair turf areas. The Rubra trichophylla variety produces shorter rhizomes that repair at a slower rate than the Rubra rubra. For the common Creeping Red we generally sell the Boreal, Evergreen, or Pernille seed varieties which are the Rubra rubra varieties.
Improved Varieties Of Creeping Red Fescue

Lustrous Creeping Red Fescue is an exceptionally shade tolerant, low growing, fine textured turf with a dark green color. New cultivars of creeping red fescue are constantly being developed with added features such as glysophate and salt tolerance. Most creeping red fescue cultivars have an attractive dark green, dense turf and a persistent growth nature due to their creeping rhizome root system.

Its ability to survive lower light intensities, or shade, makes Creeping Red one of the turf specialist's best tools!
