Festuca trichophylla

Slender creeping red fescue

Merge esthetics with performance in lawn and sport use

Confirmed performance in summer
The strong point of slender creeping red fescues is the good summer visual merit.  Greenlight confirms this and is even well above average.

Excellent disease tolerance to common diseases:

Rusts, Leaf spot, Pink snow mold and Red thread disease.

And as an extra "+" excellent salt tolerance
In our hydroponic tests, GREENLIGHT came out as one of the very best in terms of salt tolerance. It adds up to the already good performance of slender creeping red fescue in general.
This can be of great importance for:

  • Lawns and turf in coastal areas (golfs...)
  • Road sides frequently deiced with salt
  • Irrigation with recycled water etc.

  • Top visual merit during summer
  • Nice fresh green colour
  • Excellent tolerance to frequent diseases
  • High salt tolerance


Scale 1-9, where 9 = best or most pronounced

Close mowing

Red thread tolerance
