Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Versatile and pretty, blue fescue is an evergreen ornamental bunch grass that originates from North Temperate regions across the globe. It is best known for its dense bunches of fine, erect blades that are blue-green to gray-green, depending on the selection. In the summer it puts forth drooping panicles of grassy flowers from upright stems.
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.
