What are Tall Fescues?

Tall fescues are cool-season grasses that have been the preferred grass seed in the mid-Atlantic and northeastern states for nearly 30 years and, for the last ten years, in the Midwest and far-western states like California. They are adaptable to a wide range of climates, are disease resistant, and tolerate cold, heat, drought, and shade very well, thanks to a deep root system.

For the best tall fescue grass seed, choose:

Black Beauty® Original Grass Seed is the original Jonathan Green grass seed blend that contains three Tall Fescues and is grown by sod growers across the USA. It grows roots up to 4-feet deep and produces a naturally darker-green turf with better disease resistance and drought tolerance thanks to a waxy leaf coating that helps preserve moisture and ward off stress from heat, cold, wind, and disease. This blend grows well in clay or sandy soils and full sun or partial shade, with seed germination in 10 to 20 days.

Black Beauty® Ultra Grass Seed contains a mixture of exclusive, elite varieties of Tall Fescue, Kentucky Bluegrass, and Perennial Ryegrass and is also grown on sod farms.  These cool-season grasses grow a naturally dark-green and beautiful lawn with excellent heat and drought tolerance.  Black Beauty® Original Grass Seed germinates in about 14 days and will improve any lawn it is seeded into.

Black Beauty® Keystone Pennsylvania Grass Seed is a premium, all-purpose grass seed mixture specifically formulated for the climates of the state of Pennsylvania. It thrives in full sun to medium shaded lawn areas and provides an attractive, perennial, healthy, dark-green lawn. This grass seed germinates in 10 to 14 days.

Black Beauty® Sunny Grass Seed is a grass seed mixture that helps create a long-lasting, high-quality lawn in stressful, sunny growing conditions.  Black Beauty® Sunny contains Black Beauty Tall Fescues and the highest-rated, endophytic turfgrass varieties that deter damage from insects. It grows well in full sun, germinates in 10 to 14 days, and is deeply rooted for superior drought tolerance.
