Festuca arundinacea

Tall fescue

Fine leaved, very dark variety

One of the most dark green varieties available
The score of 8.6 on a scale from 1 to 9 ranks Debussy 1 as one of the most dark green varieties ever bred.

Fine leaves and dense turf
With finer leaves and high density Debussy 1 clearly belongs to the new generation of tall fescues gathering nice appearance and rusticity.

Good tolerance to all common diseases
The investment in Debussy 1 pays back for long time due to high persistency and good preservation of visual impression with high disease resistance and wear tolerance.
