Blue Mesa is a true Sheep’s Fescue (festuca Ovina) which is very limited in today’s market place. It is designed for low maintenance lawn and landscape areas, but can be a high quality turf when maintained with irrigation. Its low rate of leaf growth allows for infrequent mowings. When Blue Mesa is unmown, it will form a natural meadow type area.

Blue Mesa is a bunch type grass with a fine leaf texture and a soft blue-gray leaf color, making it a great choice where a contrast in color is desired. Blue Mesa shows good winter color which differs from many other cool season species that go off-color with winter dormancy.

Blue Mesa is a very versatile variety. It has excellent shade tolerance and handles drier shade environments. Blue Mesa is frequently used where soil erosion control is needed. Blue Me
