SpecificationsCommonly known as the Blue Fescue, Festuca glauca is a species of grass known for its blue-grey foliage. This perennial is a clump-forming ornamental grass that houses light green to purple flowers in summer; however this plant is sought after for its foliage as the flowers are insignificant in comparison. Festuca glauca is ideal for landscaping; best when mass planted. It can also be used as a border along paths, as a ground cover and in rockeries. This grass is very hardy and long lived; it will tolerate drought and frost. Position Festuca glauca in an area of full sun to part shade, with well draining soils. Festuca glauca requires low maintenance. It can be pruned annually to remove spent seed heads to encourage new growth. Keep soil moist during hotter periods. Festuca glauca can grow to a height and width of 30 centimetres.
