Defiance XRE

Many varieties of tall fescue have been developed for turf use. Growth is slower and leaves are finer textured than forage-type tall fescue. These turf-type tall fescues have become a popular choice for a more drought-resistant, cool-season lawn. Maintains green appearance in dry periods without water longer than bluegrass or ryegrass. Irrigation in extended heat/drought will help prevent stand loss. Spring seeding preferred, but early fall seedings work also.  Defiance XRE (X-treme Rhizome Expression) is a blend of high ranking turf type tall fescues in the NTEP trials.  Current varieties: Blackwatch, Davinci, Grande III, Guardian 41, Rebounder, Rowdy, and Speedway. Ideal for commercial landscape, sports fields, parks, golf roughs, and residential lawns.
