Defiance XRE Turf-Type Tall Fescue Seed BlendDefiance XRE is an eco-friendly Tall Fescue Seed Blend featuring two Tall Fescue Grass varieties that spread by rhizomes as well as two premium tall fescue varieties that blend in for a uniform look. The value of Rhizomes are that they give plants the ability to spread densely (tightly) throughout the lawn or turf area and provide strong knitting ability, enabling easier sod lifting and repair. Rhizomes in a Tall Fescue give what is normally a "clump" grass some spreading ability. This high incidence of rhizome fescues combined with other high performance tall fescue varieties, gives Defiance XRE faster recovery from injury, superior wear resistance and better ability to recover from stress than other tall fescue mixtures. XRE = eXtreme Rhizome Expression.
