Fescue – Western


Western Fescue is found at low to mid elevations in open forests, on rocky slopes and throughout the meadows of North America. It is a tufted, short-lived, perennial bunchgrass that matures at heights around 3 feet tall. It does not produce seeds that spread prolifically and it is slow to establish. Western Fescue can be found most predominantly in the western states. Commonly used for wildlife habitat restoration, it is drought and shade tolerant and requires little moisture to grow.
