Description

Festuca ovina Cool-weather native perennial

Densely-tufted, dwarf bunchgrass adapted to well-drained, medium-textured soils, with 10"-12 minimum rainfall. Good choice for the Pacific Northwest.

  • Application Rate: 3-5 lb/1000 sq ft, 10-20 lb/acre
  • Inoculant: None needed
  • Germination: 7 Days
  • Plant Height: 12"
  • Days to Maturity: 12 months
  • Uses: Erosion control, companion grass for wildflowers
  • Facts to Note: Drought tolerant and able to take partial shade, low fertility, and shallow soils. In range plantings, it is a competitive understory grass. Not a primary forage producer but readily grazed by sheep (not cattle or horses). Good companion grass for wildflowers. Easily established in spring or fall, when nights are cool. Protect from weed competition for 1-2 years.
