Fawn Tall Fescue

KENTUCKY 31 TALL FESCUE

Tall fescue is a deep-rooted, long-lived bunch grass that will slowly form a sod.  It is drought tolerant and survives well under low fertility.  Tall fescue may contain a fungus (endophyte) that grows in the plant.  The endophyte increases the stress tolerance of the tall fescue but has been associated with health problems in grazing livestock.  Mixing deep-rooted legumes in the pasture will help to reduce the toxic effect of the endophyte.  Endophyte free varieties such as Fawn and Perfect Fit brand are available if the stand will be grazed.  It will grow 2-4 feet tall.

Fawn Tall Fescue is an older, endophyte-free variety.
