Festuca trichophylla

Slender creeping red fescue

Unbeatable performance under very close cutting

Close-cut tolerant
Cezanne performs very well under close cutting (e.g. golf greens) as well in cold/temperate regions as in hot and dry regions with irrigation.

Proven wide adaption
The good performance is again and again proven in STRI trials where it is top ranking, and from results of official trials in France and Germany. In 2007 Cezanne also joined the Danish list.

Extreme density
The good adaptation to close cutting is certainly partly due to a very high density.


Scale 1-9, where 9 = best or most pronounced
