Saltillo tall fescue is a dark green cultivar with excellent summer turf performance. Saltillo was selected for salt tolerance and brown patch resistance. Saltillo has very good heat tolerance and resistance to brown patch, gray leaf spot, net blotch, stem rust, and crown rust.
Saltillo is adapted for lawns, golf course roughs, cemeteries, parks, sod production, sports fields, roadsides and slope stabilization. Its drought tolerance makes Saltillo especially well-suited for residential or commercial lawns and lowmaintenance turf areas. Saltillo performs well in sun or shade
