Festuca trichophylla

Slender creeping red fescue

High visual merit - also during the winter

Excellent visual merit
The high visual merit of PINAFORE is confirmed with the wide adaptation to three important lists, the French (GEVES), the German (RSM) and the lawn table of STRI-Bingley (UK). Even during the winter months, PINAFORE is noticeable with a score as high as 7,5 for winter greenness in the STRI table.

Attractive colour
The colour of PINAFORE is slightly darker green than average, allowing association with a wide range of varieties of most species. The colour is little affected by diseases as the general tolerance to commonly occurring fungi is high.

Highly persistent
PINAFORE is a long-term investment with a very good persistency. The presence of short rhizomes also enables self-repair and is valuable for sod production purposes.
