Hard Fescue

(Festuca ovina duriscula)


Hard Fescue is a cool-season bunchgrass from Europe. It is used for erosion control and soil improvement in the Pacific Northwest, the northern and central Rocky Mountain regions, the Intermountain region and the northern Great Plains. It is adapted to areas receiving mean annual precipitation of approximately 36 cm (14 in.) or more.

Seed can be drilled or broadcast and should be planted to a depth of 0.6 to 1.3 cm (¼ to ½ in.). Planting time varies with region and altitude; early spring at lower altitudes with reliable moisture, late fall with uncertain moisture.
