Looking for a versatile, adaptable grass for your garden or landscaping project? Look no further than Festuca rubra, also known as Red Fescue or Creeping Red Fescue. This hardy, herbaceous perennial grass can thrive in a wide range of habitats and climates, as long as it has full sun and well-drained soil. It is an excellent forage grass for wild animals, and can also provide erosion control and ground cover. Plus, its shade tolerance makes it a popular choice for landscaping projects. Festuca rubra is also an ornamental plant, available in many subspecies and cultivars for the horticulture trade. Try it as an unmowed groundcover or a lush meadow-like look!
