Festuca spp. x Lolium spp.* (Festulolium)

Perennial, cool-season hybrid cross between ryegrass (Annual or Perennial) and fescue (Meadow or Tall). Combines the fast establishment, extended productivity and high palatability of ryegrass with the disease resistance, persistence and summer stress tolerance of fescue. The result is a high-quality, hardy grass able to extend the summer growing season of irrigated hay fields and pastures. Best used in blends with other species.
