Sun AND Shade
Titan Rx was developed to thrive in full sun areas with intense solar pressure, rapid moisture evaporation, and warm ground temperatures. It’s deep roots and dense canopy work in harmony to both prevent unnecessary water evaporation as well as capture moisture and nutrients deep down into the soil. In fact, studies have shown that tall fescue can put roots down as deep as six feet.
Shade tolerance is an important feature, especially for areas with mature landscape or near buildings where turf is desired on the shady side. Titan Rx also has exceptional shade tolerance. In national turf trials conducted from 2006-2011, Titan Rx demonstrated that it could take shade better than most all other tall fescues. Out of 113 entries, including many popular varieties, Titan Rx had the second highest score!
