Hello nature lover.....!

Tall Fescue Grass Defiance XRE LogoDefiance XRE Tall Fescue Grass Seed is a fescue grass seed blend featuring at least 2 tall fescue varieties that spreads with rhizomes. XRE stands for eXtreme Rhizome Expression. The high incidence of rhizomes in these varieties, combined with other improved 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. In addition to rhizomes, Defiance XRE also has very high levels of endophytes, which give it a natural resistance to many surface feeding insects.

Defiance XRE Fescue Grass Seed Blend*

Defiance XRE Tall Fescue Seed Blend contains three to four of the following premium tall fescue seed varieties:
Wolfpack II, Rendition RX, Speedway, SR 8650, DaVinci, Justice, Gold Medallion, Grande II, Tulsa Time, or Blackwatch Tall Fescue

*Tall fescue seed varieties in Defiance XRE Tall Fescue Seed Blend and their percentages are subject to change due to seed availability. Defiance XRE will ALWAYS have two to three tall fescue varieties with rhizomes in addition to one to two top performance varieties. Contains up to 1% inert material with no noxious weed seed.

Whether you’re growing grass for commercial landscape, sports fields, parks, golf roughs, or residential lawns, Defiance XRE with rhizomes is the key a to robust, beautiful turf.

The value of Rhizomes in grass are that they give plants the ability to spread densely (tightly) throughout the lawn area and provide a strong knitting ability, enabling easier sod lifting. Rhizomes in a Tall Fescue give what is normally a clump grass some spreading ability (slight repair ability). This allows for an increase in possible repair ability over time to replace close-by plants that may have been damaged by sport activities or by weather or other site issues.

Defiance XRE has rich dark green color and proven Brown Patch resistance. The roots of Defiance XRE reach deep into the soil for exceptional water absorption and less frequent irrigation. Defiance XRE also relies less on chemical input than comparable mixtures, giving you an environmentally friendly answer to the ongoing challenge of maintaining a  hearty lush turf .
