FESTUCA glauca 'Boulder Blue'
Blue Fescue, Boulder Blue Fescue
Versatile and pretty, blue fescue is an evergreen ornamental bunch grass that originates from North Temperate regions across the globe. The cultivar 'Boulder Blue' is a large selection known for its fine, upright blades of intense blue-gray. In the summer it puts forth erect stems of blue-green grassy flowers that mature to a soft tan color.
For best growth, plant blue fescue in full sun and average soil with very good drainage. It is drought tolerant once established and may suffer from root rot if subjected to too much moisture, particularly in winter. In the landscape, it looks best in sunny borders, containers, rock gardens and or massed together as a groundcover.
