Key Features:

  1. Striking Blue-Gray Foliage: Blue Fescue Grass is prized for its slender, fine-textured leaves that emerge in shades of blue-gray, creating a cool and calming presence in the garden. The distinct coloration of its foliage provides a striking contrast to other plants and adds visual depth to garden beds and borders.

  2. Compact, Mounding Habit: With its compact and mounding growth habit, Blue Fescue Grass forms neat, dense clumps that remain tidy and uniform throughout the growing season. Its low-growing nature makes it an excellent choice for edging, mass planting, or as a focal point in small garden spaces.

  3. Drought Tolerance: Blue Fescue Grass is highly adaptable to various growing conditions and is particularly well-suited to dry, sunny locations. Its deep roots enable it to withstand periods of drought, making it an ideal choice for water-wise landscapes and xeriscaping projects.

  4. Year-Round Interest: While Blue Fescue Grass is most prized for its foliage, it also produces delicate flower spikes in early summer that add an airy and ethereal quality to the garden. These flower spikes can be left to sway in the breeze for added movement and interest or trimmed back to maintain the plant's tidy appearance.

  5. Low Maintenance: As a resilient and low-maintenance plant, Blue Fescue Grass requires minimal care once established. It is deer-resistant, pest-resistant, and disease-resistant, making it an easy-to-grow option for gardeners seeking a hassle-free ornamental grass.
