Common Name
Sheeps Fescue
Festuca ovina

Living on high, rocky slopes, with bitter cold and snow in the winter and the intense arctic sun in the summer, the Dall sheep's fescue, like its namesake, can perform under tough conditions with little or no snow, and intense summer sun are no obstacles to outstanding turf performance. With a pleasant blue/green and gray/green color, Dall sheep's fescue is an excellent choice for those low maintenance turfs that require toughness. Dall mixes will with other fine fescues, such as Chancellor chewings or Granite hard fescues. It also performs well up to 30% mixtures with perennial ryegrass and kentucky bluegrass.
