Predator hard fescue grass is an endophyte enhanced turf grass that requires less irrigation frequency than bluegrass, ryegrass and other fine fescues. Predator hard fescue grass (Festuca rubra ssp. commutate) is shade tolerant and is ideal for home lawns, parks, and high traffic applications. It exhibits good wear tolerance and resists hard use on athletic fields, and parks. Predator hard fescue is highlighted by its dark green color and moderately fine leaf texture. It has an early spring green-up and holds its color late into the fall. Predator also exhibits frost tolerance and winter hardiness, enabling its use into the northern states.
