Description
Marathon II is our most advanced dwarf tall fescue. It retains the excellent durability of the species while enhancing its beauty.Marathon II can be mowed shorter, has greater density, and slightly narrower leaves, resulting in a more compact carpet-like appearance. The growth rate is somewhat slower, particularly in winter. Marathon II contains Encore, a second-generation dwarf (sometimes termed “double dwarf”), and is a proprietary variety developed exclusively for Southland Sod Farms and the Southern California market area. Primary selection criteria were short mature growth, compact dense crown, dark color, disease resistance, and leaf texture.
  • ECE range, tolerant to 8.0, 0 - 4.0 preferred
  • Growth rate summer 5/8 inch - 1 inch per week, winter, 1/4 inch - 1/2 inch per week
  • 100% weed-free
  • Shade tolerance up to 25% shade
  • Density, approximately 60 leaves per 1-1/2 inch diameter core
