Titan Rx: The Legend Continues!

Titan Rx turf-type tall fescue is the 4th generation Titan variety. The Titans are well known and valued for providing durable attractive turf, even when conditions are less than ideal. Titan Rx continues that legacy by combining all the excellent features of the previous parentage with further selections for improved color, even stronger resistance to brown patch, heat, drought and winter, and increased rhizome growth. Titan Rx also has excellent shade tolerance, making it a very versatile variety. Whether planting straight, or using in a mix, such as our popular T.L.C. Tall Fescue Blend, Titan Rx is a great choice.

Key Features

Like its predecessors,Titan Rx is both great looking and tough to kill. In addition to great color, texture, and overall turf quality, you can expect these key performance features when using Titan Rx:

Heat and Cold Tolerant

Titan Rx can take the heat! In 2010, Georgia had record-setting summertime heat with over 40 days of temperatures above 90F! By December of 2010, the differences were clearly visible some well known varieties simply could not take the enduring heat. Titan Rx, however, had high plant counts and good density. (see picture) In fact, it was one of only a small minority of plots, out of the 113 NTEP entries, that maintained their density and quality at Griffin, GA. Titan Rx can also take the cold. Recent data from Washington State and Wisconsin show Titan Rx has good resistance to cold temperatures.

Prior to the Summer of 2010, all 113 entries looked pretty good.

AFTER the summer and extended warm fall, Titan Rx (plot on right) still looks good; but others have literally been burned out.

By the end of the following May, Titan Rx (plot on right) really shows the benefit of heat tolerance. Note other plots now look very clumpy and have large bare spots.

Shade and Drought Tolerance

Titan Rx versatility can also be seen in its ability to tolerate shade. Titan Rx had the second highest score in the 2007-11 NTEP for shade tolerance in a field of 113 entries!

Density, Disease Resistance, Color, and Quality

Titan RX provides high spring density, helps reduce weed infestations and promotes upright attractive turf. Improved disease resistance, including brown patch also ensures attractive turf, even when conditions are extra challenging. - Titan Rx's attractive medium-dark green color begins with good spring green-up.

Fill in the blanks

Over time each lawn experiences some sort of damage, leaving bare spots. Maybe the damage is caused from a pet, a piece of lawn furniture, or adverse weather. It happens to every lawn. While most tall fescue varieties have only a limited ability to fill in these blank spots, Titan Rx has been specifically selected to produce rhizomes (or underground shoots) quickly, enabling it to provide increased density and fill in bare spots with new plants.
