Millennium Tall Fescue
Tall Fescue

Description

Rating in the Top 3 in the NTEP trials is a big achievement. You would expect each variety to score well in each test… and they did! But there are differences.

Millennium came out #1 in Southern California and New York, but didn't do as well as the trial location in Utah. Millennium has slightly less summer density, which helps keep disease problems in hot humid conditions at a minimum.

Rembrandt is slightly finer in leaf texture, but so little different you probably won't be able to detect it. And, Plantation and Rembrandt both had a slightly higher Spring Greenup score, but not statistically different.

If you are looking for a rich dark green color, the best tolerance to traffic stress and shade, and excellent disease resistance… notice how Millennium beats out its two leading competitors in the chart below!

Turfgrass research has come a long way, and Millennium is the variety to take you into the next century.
