Festuca arundinacea

Tall fescue

Very dense and fine - deep dark green colour

New generation
CANNAVARO proves that it is still possible to significantly improve the Tall fescue species. Outperforming the reference variety Montserrat; we are simply talking about a new generation!

Fineness and density
In particular for density and fineness, the superiority of CANNAVARO compared to the previous generation is evident; without losing anything for the remaining characteristics.

The default mixing partner would be smooth-stalked meadow-grass. Mixtures also containing perennial ryegrass: Maintain the ryegrass share at a low level. Prefer tetraploid turf perennials when possible.
