Cold Performance

Cold Weather Performance

Trial data from Wisconsin and Minnesota shows that not all tall fescue varieties are equally adapted to colder climates. In fact, some tall fescue varieties can suffer significant winter kill and/or be severely damaged by diseases such as pink snow mold (a potentially turf-killing disease). However, with Titan Ultra, cold climate lawns are significantly less susceptible to both winter kill and pink snow mold damage.

In 2009, Titan Ultra had the highest score for pink snow mold resistance in Wisconsin.
