Super Turf II LS is a mixture of the very best of the new lower growing (dwarf) turf type tall fescues. Varieties selected score at the very top in the NTEP trials for turf quality, wear tolerance, low maintenance performance, leaf texture, endophyte enhancement and disease resistance, especially brown patch. Blue Chip and Everest are unique types of Kentucky Bluegrasses, which provides the knitting effect of the Kty. Bluegrass rhizomes but are non aggressive and will not compete with the tall fescue. The addition of a small amount of endophyte perennial ryegrass serves a two-fold purpose. It provides natural insect resistance and acts as a nurse crop to promote establishment of the tall fescue. Super Turf II LS can be used in all aspects of the turf industry. Generally recommended in areas where supplemental water is available, although Super Turf II LS will adapt well to low maintenance areas.
