Drought-Tolerant, Low Maintenance Red Fescue
Because of its fine leaf texture and darkest of green colors, it is highly recommended that Celestial be included in mixtures with Perennial Ryegrass and Kentucky bluegrass up to 40%.
Celestial shows strong seedling vigor upon emergence and was rated at the top of its class in spring green-up, and spring & summer density. It has the best winter color and is resistant to many turf diseases such as leaf spot and red thread … all proven through NTEP trial results in which Celestial rated #1!
In environmentally sensitive areas or on golf course roughs for that “dunes” look, Celestial was the top rated fine fescue when rated under non-mowed conditions, making it do “double-duty” as an ornamental grass!
The qualification of Celestial by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA) represents is a continuation of TMI’s commitment through our AquaWise program to continue to offer improved seed performance for our distribution partners, as well as leading the industry in environmentally responsible solutions.
