Rocky Mountain Fescue



A long-lived perennial, cool season, native bunchgrass. Cold and drought tolerant, it persists on fertile, silty and clayey soils, growing in well-drained meadows, sub-humid grassland sites. Rocky Mountain Fescue may be used on rangeland or erosion control on mine sites. Common at higher, subalpine and alpine elevations in the Rocky Mountains and the Northwest of the United States.
