Product Overview

Tall fescue is valued for its adaptability to a wide range of climates and its tolerances for cold, heat, drought and shade. Ideal for the northern and transition zones, Pennington The Rebels Tall Fescue has represented the finest quality of tall fescue on the market for decades. This grass is tough. It has thick, deep, and dense roots that result in excellent drought and traffic tolerance. In areas of your yard that receive 4-hours to 6-hours of sunlight, plant it in early spring or early fall and see results in 8-days to 16-days. This 40 lbs. bag covers up to 10,000 sq. ft. for overseeding an existing lawn and 3,330 sq. ft. for starting a new lawn from scratch. The Roots of The Rebels Brand dates back to 1979, when turf researchers at Rutgers University released a revolutionary new grass. Known as Rebel, it was the very first example of what's now known as turf-type tall fescue. Compared to traditional tall fescue, Rebel offered lower growth, finer texture, darker color and denser turf - plus the drought tolerance that makes turf-type tall fescue a homeowner favorite. Generations later, with up to 40% more roots than ordinary grass, The Rebels Brand Extended Root seed varieties represent the best turf-type tall fescue on the market. With roots like those, it's only natural that The Rebels Brand carries the Pennington name.
  • Pennington The Rebels Premium Grass Seed Collection

20% Germination at Best
Very disappointed in this seed. 15 Days later and very little growth. Irrigation system was used 3 times each day to keep the seeds hydrated. Such a waste :(

    Great quality
    I’ve been working on my backyard for a while now and finally got a hold of these seeds that are great quality. Dense and amazing price for the quantity. Can’t wait to see the results.

      Wonderful grass seed
      I was looking for an alternative to other tall fescue that I have tried in the past. Rebel turned out to be everything I hoped for and more. I grows as a fine blade, rather than the broader blades I get with the other brands. Germination was in 4-10 days. With the recent rains, my lawn looks fabulous. I am thrilled. Highly recommended.

        Weeds, Low Germination, Skimpy Grass
        Unfortunately, this product did not work as-advertised on my property. After prepping my lawn with a thorough fall aeration and taking all necessary steps (with waterings 1-2x a day), I finally saw little specks of grass come up after 10 days (along with many weeds that my lawn previously did not have). I'm scared to see my water bill. I'm disappointed by the quality of this grass seed and hope to be refunded for the seed at least: extra for water bill and trouble would be ideal. I don't recommend you go with this seed and had better luck with Home Depot's Vigoro big contractor seed bag before it was discontinued.

          Weeds Galore
          Good news - pretty good germination after a week. Bad news - as many weeds as grass. I thought I might be able to blame the topsoil I used, but I'm getting these same weeds in areas where I only overseeded and didn't put down topsoil. I'd estimate at least 50% of the bag I got has been weeds - far more than the 99.9% weed free claim on the bag.

            DO NOT BUY! I got more weeds and crab grass to grow from this product than I got fescue. Wanted to fill in a bare spot so put down some Scotts Turf Builder LawnSoil and then this seed, Rebels Tall Fescue Mix. The fescue grew in clumps and left bare spots that did not grow at all(weird, but that was the pattern. And I got plenty of "tree" weeds (looked like mini trees, see pics) and crabgrass. I have lived in this house for 26 years and have never seen these weeds or had crabgrass on my property or in my neighborhood. I thought maybe the weeds and/or crabgrass could have come from the Scotts soil, but nope. Unfortunately, I spread the seed all over my front and back yard and so I am seeing these weeds and crabgrass popping up all over. Fortunately, I did not spread it to thick on the rest of the yard, but even still, I find myself digging these guys up everywhere. I have seeded plenty of times over the 26 years I have been here and with many different brands and I have never had anything like this happen. Maybe a bad batch? Not sure, but will never use Rebels again.

              Did not grow
              Purchased to over seed lawn. Lawn was aerated and fertilized. With the heavy dew, the seed was moist in the morning and I watered daily unless it rained. After 14 days there is no grass, just ungerminated white seeds visible.

                WOW 1” tall growth in 6 days
                Was a little skeptical but followed the reviews and went with rebel vs the other 2 main brands. Very impressed as on the 6th day after spreading the seed and raking it in I have grass sprouting up about an inch. Thanks to the previous users that left reviews for persuuding me to switch brands.

                  Best grass seed I've used. I swear every seed grew! I loosened up the dirt (red mud). Then I tossed out some topsoil. Then I cast the seed by hand. After that I covered everything with wheat straw. Fortunately the rains came & wa la! Awesome seed.
