Tall fescue – has a strong, deep taproot system and produces short underground shoots, making it highly resistant to grazing and drought. Does not tolerate low mowing (not below 3.0 cm) and does not like shade.
Use: for fodder (if cut no later than before the start of swimming), lawns, esp. for purpose plots (hippodromes, roadsides) anywhere, mowing is not done very low.
Cultivation features: grows in various soils. Partially resistant to droughts and tolerates short-term waterlogging of the subsoil. It grows tall and compact, so it competes well with other grasses (in mixes with meadow mists, red fescue, etc.), but reed fescue should dominate the mix.
