Festuca glauca Blue Glow


Blue Fescue

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 8.170.150


(='Blauglut') There are several selections of Blue Fescue, all of them valued for their clumping habit, and display of colourful, grassy foliage. This form has intensely silver-blue leaves, with an early summer display of thin tan-coloured spikes for several weeks. Excellent for mass planting, edging, or in the rock garden. 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.
