Black Beauty is a variety of turf-type tall fescue, but with a much finer blade. The finer blade gives it a darker green appearance than other turf-type fescues, with a texture closer to bluegrass—with all the benefits of turf-type tall fescue.
Black Beauty produces a darker-green turf naturally. An invisible waxy coating on the blades helps protect against moisture loss and wards off stress from temperature extremes, wind and disease. With improved disease resistance and drought tolerance, Black Beauty turf redefines what a “green lawn” is supposed to look like.


Black Beauty grows well in clay or sandy soils and in full sun or partial shade. Underground irrigation is recommended with Black Beauty.

Reminder: Underground sprinkler system with auto control necessary for good results
