ARCHIBAL

ARCHIBAL

Festuca trichophylla

Slender creeping red fescue

A widespread name and Variety!

Preceptibel by mind's eye

Stable and good visual merit if cut very short as close mown turf or kept a bit longer as a normal lawn.

 

High disease resistance

Really close mown ARCHIBAL shows a very healthy consistence as it has a high resistance against Red thread.

 

Wanted for mixtures

Above average performer in terms of shoot density used as lawn variety and if considert as close mown variety ARCHIBAL shows nice and good density. If used in a blend or mixture ARCHIBAL is a fair partner and leaves some room for a companion to create a nice homogeny turf. That makes this variety a favorable mixing partner.

Tolerant to salt stress like few others.

  • Good visual merit
  • Nice summer appearance
  • Good disease resistance
  • First choice for blends and mixtures
