The Q&A Archives: Creeping Red Festuca

Question: Looking to plant a hill on 1 acre. Full sun. Would like to use Creeping Red Festuca. Do you have any information on this plant? Could not locate it in your plant catalog.

Answer: Festuca rubra, creeping red fescue, spreads by rhizomes and can be used alone or blended in with other lawn grasses. It's shade tolerant but grows best in full sunshine; can be mowed or left unmowed. It makes an attractive meadow on slopes. It's not fussy about soil but does need regular water for best growth. Hope this answers your question!
