Festulolium (Festulolium braunii)

Cool Season Perennial

Festulolium is a cross between meadow fescue or tall fescue and perennial ryegrass or annual ryegrass. Regardless the actual cross, it is an upright short lived bunchgrass perennial. Fescue types tend to be more winter hardy than the ryegrass types, but are a bit less palatable. Festulolium has good resistance to salinity, moderately resistant to drought.
