Quality in all aspects

Slender Creeping Red Fescue

Quality in general appearance
AMARONE forms a very beautiful turf with a high visual merit and a relatively dark green colour. The density is at the top among trichophylla varieties.

Quality in disease tolerance
AMARONE has very good tolerance to Fusarium. This gives the variety a very fine winter colour and a good spring growth. The tolerance against the disease red thread is also good.

Quality in use
Together these excellent growing aspects means, that AMARONE is a very good choice for lawns where the general aspect is important as well as the ability to withstand unfavourable conditions like drought and hard winters.
