Eureka II is a deep dark green, dense, slow growing bunch grass that spreads slowly with basal tillering.
Once fully established, it requires little supplemental irrigation or fertilizer and tolerates acidic, infertile shady planting sites. Eureka II was entered in the 1998 Fine Fescue NTEP Test along with 78 fine fescue and 22 chewing fescue varieties. Data from the 2000 Progress Report indicates that Eureka II tied for 3rd in turf quality and 1st in color among hard fescue varieties. It also exhibits strong disease resistance.
