Festuca arundinacea

Tall fescue

Unrivalled deep rooting and top scores for all characters

Visual merit in the winter season

Tall fescue is generally less attractive during the winter season than other cool season grasses. Armani is a huge step forward, standing clearly out from the surronding plots in comparative trials.

Density and wear tolerance combined

Not just an "ornamental variety" with exceptional fineness and density, Armani withstands hard wear, resulting in very high indexes for Sport and Lawn in the official French trials (see chart).

Excellent disease tolerance

With a 9 for rust tolerance, not a single spore found its way into the leaves of Armani. With very good tolerance to Microdochium and leaf spot, Armani is well equipped to remain attractive all year around.

Deep rooting!

Together with Copenhagen University DLF is testing the root architecture and drought tolerance in the advanced screening facility RadiMax. It shows deeper rooting of Armani than of all other tested tall fescues. ARMANI is Verified by RadiMax.
