Fine Fescues are very fine textured turfgrasses that are adapted to the cool temperate regions of the United States and Canada. The family of fine fescues comprises Creeping Red Fescue, Hard Fescue, Sheep's Fescue and Chewing Fescue. Commercial and residential turf situations are the primary use of fine fescues.
Fine fescues have the best shade tolerance of the cool season turfgrasses and are often used in mixtures with Kentucky Bluegrass where shade is present. Cold tolerance of these species is excellent. However, the fine fescues have a poor wear tolerance and should not be used in athletic fields or areas of high traffic.
