Hillary Fescue is a deep-rooting grass that does particularly well in summer drought conditions. Though it is slower to establish while laying down its root structure, once this is in place, it yields well. Overall, it is a cultivar that produces more quality feed than quantity. With fine leaves, it complements the growth of clovers and grazing herbs. Hillary Fescue has good rust resistance. To achieve the best results, we recommend planting when the soil temperature is 12 degrees or warmer. It can be sown as a speciality pasture or as part of a mix.
