NZLA Elfin Tall Fescue

NZLA Elfin Tall Fescue

Elfin Tall Fescue quickly forms a strong dense turf and has excellent wear tolerance. With a reasonably fine texture, it has a very dark green appearance and performs well in shaded areas. Unlike our Ultimate Tall Fescue, it has a rhizomatous root system providing aggressive tillering and exceptional recovery from wear. This turf performs well across New Zealand in full sun and moderate shade. It’s a great choice for a moderate to heavy foot traffic lawn.

Tall fescue is one of the most drought, heat, and wear tolerant species. Due to its large and deep root system, it is able to take up water in dry periods when other grasses have stopped their growth. It stays green in dry summer periods and tolerates high temperatures.

Irrigation: Elfin Tall Fescue is a particularly slow species to establish from seed, because of this it's essential to have irrigation on a timer or set up a temporary irrigation while this seed gets established. Keep the seed moist during the day by having the irrigation come on three to five times a day (depending on the temperature).
