Red fescue (chewings fescue) – tufted (witchy) red fescue (lat. F.r. ssp. commutata Gaud.). Fescues of this subspecies do not allow rhizomes when they are bushy, but form dense low clusters. In the beginning, the cherus of black fescue is visually denser, but the cherus thins over time, so it is not recommended to sow this fescue alone for lawns. It is necessary to combine with rhizome forms (Festuca rubra rubra) or with other rhizomatous bell grasses.
Use: for lawns in mixtures.
Cultivation features: they can grow in lighter, less fertile and less moisture-retentive soil.
