Festuca commutata

Chewings fescue

Top lawn performance with outstanding red thread tolerance

Score 0.7 higher than the 2nd best for red thread

Differences are rarely so exceptional as for the Siskin red thread score for Lawn use on the STRI list.  0.7 higher than number two is an exceptional progress. It will contribute to visual merit even with very low input.  The cutting height of the Lawn trials also indicates a perfect variety for golf fairways.

Suitable for golf greens too

Just as for Lawn use, Siskin shows high performance in trials cut at green height.
