ABSTRACT
Fescue, a group of about 100 species of perennial grasses that grow in temperate regions. Many fescues are grown as lawn and golf-course grasses, and for pasture and hay. Most are bunch grasses, which grow in clumps. An exception is red fescue, a fine-leaved grass that forms a thick mat. Chewing's fescue is a more durable variety of red. Tall fescue grows from two to four feet (60 to 120 cm) tall and is used for pastures and hay. Another tall pasture and hay grass is meadow fescue. Sheep's fescue is a narrow-leaved lawn grass.
