AruBA STRONG - RED FESCUE

JF Aruba
STRENGTHS:

• Excellent seedling vigor
• Persistent on low pH, infertile sites
• Excellent shade tolerance
• Rhizomatous sod forming turf
• Drought tolerant


AGRONOMIC CHARACTERISTICS:
Aruba strong creeping red fescue is a vigorous sod forming variety, which provides a bright medium green, fine-textured turf under minimal maintenance. It is well adapted to sandy, infertile and droughty soils and is an excellent choice on areas where regular maintenance is not possible, such as embankments, deep roughs, and roadsides. Aruba tolerates soil pH from 4.5 to 8.0. The shade tolerance of Aruba is excellent, and therefore it fits in well with landscaped areas, which include trees and other structures.

Aruba breaks winter dormancy and greens up in early spring for aesthetic value and recuperation from wear. Unlike many Chewings type fescues, Aruba blends very well in mixture with Kentucky bluegrasses, perennial ryegrasses and other fine fescues for a more broadly adapted turf. Aruba should be maintained at 2.5 cm (1 in) or more for best persistence.
