Description

Festuca Glauca

There are several selections of Blue Fescue, all of them valued for their clumping habit and display of colourful, grassy foliage. This is considered to be one of the hardiest, selected in northern Manitoba. The plant forms a tuft of blue-green leaves with tan blossom spikes appearing in early summer. Excellent for mass planting, edging, in containers and in the rock garden. Drought tolerant once established. Clumps are easily divided in early spring, and this should be done every 2 to 3 years. Evergreen in mild areas; in colder winter regions the leaves should be trimmed back in late winter right to the base. Flower spikes may also be removed in summer, if desired.
