Oxford Hard Fescue Grass

Oxford hard fescue grass is one of the best hard fescues on the market today. It has been selected as a low growing fine fescue with a darker green color which makes it a premium grass for both low maintenance sites and as part of a high quality lawn mix. In addition, Oxford fescue grass seed contains very high levels of viable endophyte. The endophyte is a fungus that lives between the plant cells and provides Oxford with natural insect resistance and the ability to persist in adverse environmental conditions. It is also a good grass seed for shade conditions. Hard fescue uses range from erosion control, creating a naturalized area that will not be mowed or maintained, as well as a fine fescue lawn.

Oxford contains high levels of viable endophytes. The presence of these high levels provides many benefits that make this grass seed particularly valuable for use in those sites where chemical applications are limited. The presence of the endophyte has been shown to provide resistance to a number of important turf insects including: billbugs, sod webworms, chinch bugs, and armyworms. In addition, endophyte-enhanced cultivars during high stress periods have demonstrated increased vigor, reduced weed invasion, rapid recovery from injury, improved persistence, greater density, and increased heat and drought tolerance. The presence of the endophyte makes Oxford fescue grass seed even better adapted to the droughty, low maintenance sites where hard fescues are superior.

Oxford fescue grass has shown high resistance to many common turf diseases including leafspot, red thread, summer patch, pink patch, netblotch, powdery mildew, leaf rust, and dollar spot. This combination of disease and insect resistance contributes to its superior performance in the shade and makes Oxford fescue grass perfect for environmentally sensitive areas where chemical applications may be limited.
