With excellent shade tolerance, Ruddy Strong creeping red fescue can be used from full sun to deep shade, and in low or high maintenance sites. It has superior winter hardiness and stress tolerance for performance from the transition zone to the far north.
Ruddy Strong creeping red fescue demonstrates high resistance to Dollar Spot, Red Thread and Leaf Spot. It has high levels of endophyte for resistance to surface feeding insects and improved stress tolerance. Ruddy Strong creeping red fescue is excellent for blending with other fine fescues, Kentucky Bluegrasses and perennial ryegrass.
