Comments: A hardy, vigorously growing, drought tolerant grass that is used in lawns. It is very popular for lawn use since it is easily established by seed, grows fast, and withstands traffic or wear well. Fescue does not like the long, hot, summers of the deep South and grows further north. It will grow from the northern and mountainous parts of Texas, Arkansas, Georgia, and North Carolina into Canada.
